Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 669099
user input doesn't stop idle fade out
Last modified: 2012-08-16 16:28:40 EDT
Description of problem:
When the screensaver starts to fade to black after an idle timeout, mouse motion and keyboard input fail to stop the slow fade to black until after the fading is complete. It takes several seconds to fade to black, so it's kind of annoying. A minor inconvenience for most people, but I have my hour logging tied to screensaver status and a timeout of 2 minutes.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Not always, but most of the time.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Set up screensaver to activate after N minute idle timeout
2.Wait N minutes
3.Move mouse during screensaver fade out
screensaver continues to fade out
mouse motion immediately stops screensaver fade out

This message is a notice that Fedora 14 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 14. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '14' have been closed as WONTFIX.
(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 14 reached end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that
version of Fedora.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
