Power management not working in Ubuntu 10.04

Hello There:

I've recently installed Ubuntu 10.04 and found the following problem: power management doesn't appear to be working. If I'm away from my computer for only a few moments, the screen is on dim when I return and I have to log on again. I've set the following states in Power Management: NEVER SWITCH OFF SCREEN and haven't ticked the DIM WHEN IDLE BOX. Can anyone help with this problem - it's infuriating. Meanwhile, I've gone back to Ubuntu 9.10 ...

Try checking your Screensaver settings under System -> Preferences -> Screensaver (if I'm not mistaken, I don't have mine in English).

There's an option to lock your screen when the screensaver is activated. Unchecking it should do the trick.
