It did not survive the reboot, so I've "xset dpms 250 300 600" and will
test shortly by leaving it alone once I get caught up with the email.
Where, if kde (or the pclos versions of drakex) cannot set for a default,
is there some place in the /etc/X11 tree where I can add or change this so
it works automatically when x is started?
It found this in /etc/X11/*/*
gene at coyote X11]$ grep dpms */*
Is this not working because I'm using a kde screenblanker as opposed to the
x screenblanker, and if so, how is this changed? This is kde-4.5.0.
The above file does control it, except nothing happens for Standby or
Suspend, but it does go off now, 6 seconds after the dpmsOff time.
However, that file said it was enabled, but it actually wasn't until I ran
the "xset +dpms" command. So I guess now the question is where can I put a
line in the x startup that enables this. Bearing in mind that the
Xorg.0.log says it is already.
Methinks we have a mild case of too many cooks seasoning this broth. ;-)
Thanks again, Scott.
