Description illumilore 2012-01-28 05:08:10 UTC
Version:           unspecified (using KDE 4.8.0) 
OS:                Linux

After upgrading to 4.8, the monitor now turns off after a set amount of time, even though screen energy saving is not checked in the energy saving settings control in power management.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual Results:  

Expected Results:

Seeing similar behavior with OpenSUSE 12.1 RPMs (4.8.0, 4.8.1).  I have screen energy saving set for 60 minutes on AC power.  However, the screen in fact switches off after a shorter period of time.

If I run xset q, I observe that DPMS is set to standby after 1200 seconds, suspend at 1500, and off at 1800.  If I manually reset it with

xset dpms 0 0 0

it takes, but if I suspend and resume the laptop, it gets reset to 1200/1500/1800.

Sometimes I've seen the DPMS values get set to very small values -- well under a minue.  But I don't have a reproducible test case.

What I observe is that whenever I suspend my laptop, the values *always* get reset to 1200/1500/1800.

Interestingly, even if I run pm-suspend from the command line, this still happens.  So my problem may be something different.  Or it may not.

And even more specifically, if I use a failsafe session, this still happens.  So my problem is evidently not in KDE.

run in konsole:
#xset -dpms
#xset s off
monitor would not power off

I think this is a duplicate of 295164, but I don't see anywhere to mark it.
