Regression: Gnome Screensaver Does Not Shutoff Monitor (kernel-3.6.1-1.fc17.x86_64)
Last modified: 2012-10-19 17:04:32 EDT
Description of problem:
On previous versions, the GNOME screensaver would always shutoff the monitor when the idle time had elapsed. On kernel-3.6.1-1, the screensaver blanks and locks the screen, but it does not shutoff the monitor.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always, at least on my machine.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot into 3.6.1.
3. Wait for idle time to elapse.
Screensaver blanks and locks screen, but does not shutdown monitor.
Screensaver blanks and locks screen, and shuts down monitor.
The only difference is booting between the two kernel versions. When booting the older kernel-3.5.6-1.fc17.x86_64, it works as expected. When booting the newer kernel-3.6.1-1.fc17.x86_64, it fails.
