Mandriva 2007 turn off power management


Hi,

How can I turn off the power management thing on Mandriva 2007? Whenever I leave my laptop and it goes on screensaver, my screen goes blank and it wouldn't recover. I have to force it to shutdown by holding power key until computer is turned off.
I have turned off the power management in KDE control module but it seems like it is not the only issue.

Thanks

Ali

Use the Mandriva Control Center, go into the system section, then the Services tool
turn off acpi, deselect the start at boot option.

I would also disable, or even uninstall laptop-utils.
they are only power management tools.

I saw this years ago on a laptop with every distro, and now disable and stop installation of the power management on laptops because of the problems that they cause.

It's nice to get an update that tells me to continue not installing and using them, it's to bad the developers working on them can't get them to work right.

But if I do those, then I won't be able to use my battery monitor and also, my batter life will be shorter, right?
