[SOLVED] Monitors Not Turning Off

Post by Mind_ » Sun Dec 22, 2019 4:26 pm

I have it set to put the monitors to go off after 20 minutes. For months, this has been OK. In the last week, I noticed it hasn't been doing that.

Is there some update that changed this function? Never personally changed anything...

Well, that's what happened a few weeks ago, not doing that now...

Since you posted this in the forum of xfce4, I would doublecheck the settings in the xfce-settings

Power Settings show up all normal, so, ny guess is, something is overpowering it, background program or whatnot. Can't pinpoint it.

Think I found the problem. For some stickin reason, VLC wouldn't close. Not on the desktop, but in the background. So I set it to the kill command, and it went bye bye..
