Hi. Please, how make the display still on when netbook is inactive? I uninstalled Xscreensaver and run Xfce Power Manager, everywhere is set to Nothing, but after 15min inactivity display switch off. Is there a file where it can be changed?

You problem reminds me of this thread here. I remember in the distant past having problems with uninvited screen-blanking. I don't recall if I changed anything for Power Manager. But to disable dpms screen-blanking, I have these commands run during startup...
xset -dpms # turn off dpms power-management xset s 0 0 # set the length and period of the screensaver's Blanktime to 0 and 0 xset s off # turn off screensaver xset s noblank # turn off screen blanking
akisha you don't say what version or distro you are using but some distros have a problem with systemd and the power manager not co-operating, e.g. see this thread on Fedora 18 - https://forum.xfce.org/viewtopic.php?id=8090. Could this be your problem?
Thanks for reply. Yes, I have Fedora 18 with Xfce 4.10, but sound and everything runs, only screen turns off.
But I found a solution in:
xset s 0 0 # set the length and period of the screensaver's Blanktime to 0 and 0
Thank you so much!
