- desktop machine
- NVIDIA GF119 [NVS 315]
- two displays via DP
when locking screens, power save kicks in after defined interval, but screen immediately power on again.
while logged in issuing
xset dpms force suspend
blanks the screens AND the screens stay blank
having the command run after lock, screens still wake up again.
seems to be an issue with the lock screen since power save works when not locked.
STEPS TO REPRODUCE
(available in About System)
KDE Plasma Version:
KDE Frameworks Version:
*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of bug 348529 ***
this is no duplicate of 348529!
this bug is about the proposed workaround not working as well!
while I am bitten by both bugs, those are two separate issues.
this one is about the screens not _staying_ blank when in lock screen, NOT the screen not _blanking_.
Steps to reproduce?
Also give the precise command you entered in the workaround.
Could also be something simple, like the mouse registering movement.

see initial report.
and it doesn't matter whether I use xset or plasma's Energy saving -> switch off after X min -- screen always wakes up again.
I too have this issue after switching to mb ASUS PRME B450M-A
Problem exists on Kubuntu as well as Fedora30,31/KDE spin .
Problem does not exists on Ubuntu or Fedore 30,31 Desktop
Note: If I leave the computer at login prompt the screen does go into powersave mode ad stay there
Same problem here with Plasma 5.14.5 (on an in-house developed variant of Debian). The screen is still on after more than 24 hours of inactivity.
Problem exists on
KDE NEON 5.19
KDE Frameworks 5.73.0
On Neon 5.19.5 disabling kscreen2 'fixes' this issue (for me anyway) .
