Hello,

I have searched the FAQ as well as the forums to no avail.

Question:
Installed FC5 on ibook G4
updated with yum
the power management to turn the LCD screen off does not work. I have a manual command I can use to turn off the screen, but it's not what I need.

I leave the laptop on all the time for ssh access, so i would like the LCD to turn off after a period of time, or even a hotkey to turn it off would suffice.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

Well, for those of you who need to do this..... I found the answer - in the sys prefs for keyboard shortcuts, the brightness / audio are disabled, I just set the standard f1 / f2 to lower brightness and raise it, and those keys worked..
