Ubuntu 11.10 auto shut down adjustments?


When I am watching a video stream or listening to online music, Ubuntu 11.10 will automatically shut down after approximately 10 minutes if there is no mouse or keyboard activity. How do I change this setting?
Thanks for helping a newbie.

have a look at your power settings - you have something like 'suspend after XX mins' turned on.

Greetings,

Sounds like either a Power Management or Screensaver issue. There's a applet for controlling those in the System>Preferences menu.

Thanks for posting and thanks all.

Be real, be sober.
