Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Hey guys, this is an easy one. I have my screensaver (glmatrix -- love it) running fine after 4 minutes. The checkbox for "make aware of power management" is not checked. The problem is that the screen blanks after a minute or two of the screensaver. I'm guessing that there is another option somewhere to blank the screen after X amount of time, and that is blanking the screensaver out. Where is this option?
hmm, I was thinking more along the lines of an option somewhere in yast about blanking the screen - I'll do some more hunting around. I know theres nothing in xorg.conf, because thats all handled with sax2, and I know that's way out of X's domain.
lol yeah, I was with slackware, but then I realized suse is all gui and wonderful while it works. It just so happens that it works 99% of the time, so I'm ok with that. Ubuntu is good - I reccomend it to many people.
If you're using KDE go to the Control Center. Then go to "Peripherals" and then to "Display". Go over to the "Power Control" tab and make sure that "Enable Display power management" is not checked. Hope this helps.
