View Full Version : [SOLVED] screensaver ignoring configured settings

22nd December 2010, 09:29 AM
Hello all,

I am using F14 installed from DVD, updated to the latest bugfixes for all packages; I also have the nvidia proprietary drivers installed.

I have configured my gnome-screensaver using gnome-screensaver-preferences to have a delay of one hour before it blanks the screen. However, no matter the settings I choose (even testing with only a 1 minute delay) the screensaver always kicks in at the 10 minute mark. This persists no matter the graphics driver I use.

The only means by which I can stop the screen from locking while watching videos online is to kill the gnome-screensaver daemon.

What information should I provide to assist in determining why this is happening? It's very aggravating. I'll include my current xorg.conf in the event that it may help.

Thank you for your time.

Nevermind! As though by incredible predictive superknowledge, the X server update just now fixed it within an hour of my posting.

Will close as solved; was just an X bug after all.
