View Full Version : FC5 / ibook G4 / LCD power management

29th March 2006, 04:05 PM

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

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..
