Ok so I've been trying to figure out what's going on. I don't think the computer is going into suspend mode, because I can ctrl+alt+dlt when the screen goes blank.
The strange thing is I don't see anything in acpi telling my screen to turn off.
The only two files in /etc/acpi are
# This is the ACPID default configuration, it takes all
# events and passes them to /etc/acpi/default.sh for further
# event keeps a regular expression matching the event. To get
# power events only, just use something like "event=button power.*"
# to catch it.
# action keeps the command to be executed after an event occurs
# In case of the power event above, your entry may look this way:
# Optionally you can specify the placeholder %e. It will pass
# through the whole kernel event message to the program you've
# Default acpi script that takes an entry for all actions
case "$1" in
case "$2" in
power) /sbin/init 0
*) logger "ACPI action $2 is not defined"
logger "ACPI group $1 / action $2 is not defined"
Am I missing something here?
