Why?

Since upgrading to the latest version of xfce through LinuxMint I've found that power management is completely broken.
I've had it set to Blank after 15 minutes, Put to Sleep after 20 minutes, and switch off after 30 minutes for years. It does nothing now.

Secondly, When I'm using Chrome to upload an image to social media, and I get the "Open File" dialog, I can browse to the folder that contains a thousand files. There used to be a search filter button to begin typing in the name of the file, which would filter out all the others and make it easier to select the file I want. It's gone now, so I'm left scrolling through this folder of files manually sifting through to make my selection.

Is there any "fix" for these problems?
I'm considering downgrading to the previous version, to get these features back.

Can you post back the output of the following commands:

ps -ef | grep power
xfconf-query -c xfce4-power-manager -lv

Lets have a look at that first before we look at debug logs.

I believe this is the GtkFilechooser dialog. Try pressing Ctrl+F to bring up the search filter button.

Re: Why?

/xfce4-power-manager/presentation-mode            true

You have presentation mode enabled. That will suppress all power management activities. You can disable presentation mode by left-clicking on the panel plugin (and unchecking the option), or running the following command:

xfconf-query -c xfce4-power-manager -p /xfce4-power-manager/presentation-mode -s false

Re: Why?

Yes, I do for the task I am currently running, while discussing this with you today. Normally it's not in presentation mode.

When I turn off presentation mode, close all applications and walk away for 2 hours, my desktop will be exactly as I left it. It won't go blank or sleep or switch off..... unless all 3 power management settings are set below 14 minutes.

Re: Why?

Okay. Lets run it in debug mode to see if it can tell us what is happening:

xfce4-power-manager -q
xfce4-power-manager --no-daemon --debug

Then, lets set blank_on_ac to a lower value so you don't have to wait so long:

xfconf-query -c xfce4-power-manager -p /xfce4-power-manager/blank-on-ac -s 1

After at least 2 minutes have passed, can you post back the output from the terminal window where you ran xfce4-power-manager in debug mode?

Edit: Sorry missed the part about "less than 14 minutes". Try this approach again but with your default settings as well.

Re: Why?

It did go blank.
Another thing I found out is that if the display settings are below 14 minutes, it works. 15 minutes and higher it fails.

Re: Why?

Can you run the same test with 15 minutes as the blank-on-ac value?

Also:

xfce4-power-manager --dump

Is this a desktop?

Re: Why?

It did go blank after 15 minutes that time.

This is kind of what I was looking for in the logs - chrome is preventing any power management. But it should have prevented it?

Do you have chrome running when it doesn't blank?

Re: Why?

Yes, playing around on an online game. I really don't expect it to blank while I'm using the PC.
When I did the test, the game I was running on Chrome was still running. I just didn't touch the mouse or keyboard
and it did go blank after the 15 minutes, with Chrome running.
When I shutdown for the evening, I close all applications,...Chrome, Thunderbird,.... everything. And just leave it.
This PC is in my bedroom. Anytime during the night that I wake up, the monitor is still on.
Sometimes it will go blank, and within a minute, it comes back on.

I have just recently upgraded to LinuxMint 21.2
I never had this problem until then. Getting support from LinuxMint is like pulling teeth.
That's why I'm checking with you. Not a big deal, as I can just turn the monitor off when I'm done using it,.... but the PC will not be doing any logging out or any "power" managing. Basically it will just be running without any of my applications running.

Re: Why?

Keep an eye on the inhibition thing - support for videos/audio playing and preventing power management was recently added. If you have the power manager plugin added to the panel, you can single click it and it will show if any apps have an inhibit set.

Re: Why?

I do have the panel plugin on the panel. Right now with 2 Chrome browsers open and Thunderbird open, clicking the applet on the panel shows my Logitech M705 mouse. It has always shown it at 55% battery. It will show 55% battery with a brand new set of batteries just put in.
I have a free partition. I'm going to install Xubuntu and see if it has this glitch. I'll let you know in a few days. Thanks for the help.

Re: Why?

ToZ, after trying several things over the last few days, I have downgraded the power manager back to version 4.16.0-1.
It is working perfectly. I'm lost as to if this is a unique problem with how my LinuxMint 21.2 upgrade went or what could be causing this issue.
For now I have 4.16.0-1 version pinned by synaptic.
