Power Saving


I'm trying to figure out why my machine keeps going into power saving mode.

Under KDE I've disabled all 3 options for Power Saving and Power Control. I also have the Screensaver making sure it follows the Power Saving Settings. Though when I look at the Power Control section. It says my device does not support Power Saving??

So what can I do to make it stop turning the monitor off after the screensaver has been running for like 5 mins?

Are you using the KDE screensaver or Xscreensaver? The KDE settings don't apply to xscreensaver.
