Erratic Power Management

Hi all,

I have recently loaded Ubuntu 9.10 which runs perfectly, except for the power management system. I go into the GUI power management screen and tell it to use the screen-saver after ten minutes, but NEVER suspend/hibernate - but it suspends/hibernates anyway,sometimes after an hour, sometimes hours later... Is it possible to keep the screen-saver but disable the rest of the power management system?

Help much appreciated.

The thread is; fedora 12 hangs after 30 minutes. Your solution may look something alike. Make everything the same and something you can live with. Computers are just quick idiots.
