XFCE 4.14 - something is preventing display to go to sleep

Hello,

In Xfce 4.12 power manager worked correctly, it put my display to sleep after 10 minutes.

After I updated to Xfce 4.14 (openSUSE Tumbleweed, I installed it more times), very often something is preventing the display to enter sleep/power off. In about 95% of cases if I leave the system idle after 10 minutes it tries to shut down the display, it goes blank for 2-3 seconds, then it goes on again (in about 5% of cases it works).

Note: I deactivated the screensaver.

I did some tests, setting display sleep after 1 minute and off after 2 minutes. I tried exiting Claws Mail, Firefox, but to no avail.

I searched the internet - no solution.

Otherwise, Xfce is perfect. Congratulations!

See if this thread gives you some hints, although there's no conclusion there...

I seem to recall something similar was happening recently to another OpenSUSE user, I'll see if I can find it again, good luck!

Thank you for the reply!

I tried "xfce4-power-manager -q && xfce4-power-manager ---no-daemon --debug" , it filled immediately the console with some warnings/errors, but at the time of scheduled screen sleep nothing else appeared.

Note: I have an old video card, AMD Radeon 6770 Sapphire. But I think I did not have this problem with it in Xfce 4.12.
