Where can I set power management in LXLE
 
I'm trying to stop power management in Latest LXLE. I have tried to follow script advice from help pages, but don't know coding yet. Is there a simple GUI program I can use to stop the monitor from shutting off, and the screen lock requiring a password.

I am also having to logout from LQ numerous attempts before it completes, and sometimes I am still logged in next time I boot and go to the login page.

I installed xfce4-power-manager using Synaptic Package Manager, and under the control menu/settings there was a new entry, power manager, not 'Power Management'. ran the program and got a lovely GUI to control all my power settings... should have made that one a default install I think., so easy for newbies like myself.

With the logout problem I noticed only when I click ' Return to forums ' link, does it logout properly... if that helps.

Hi clifftec,

Seems as if you've solved the power management problem with your own efforts. Great job! :)

Is this a question about the LQ forums?

... original problem

yeh I should be more specific... when I logout from the LQ site, the page returns with my login details still 'logged in' each time, and only when I click the 'Go to forums Index' link, does the page return with blanks in the login box.

You're saying that the auto-complete fields have information in them after you log out, however you are logged out?

clifftec 07-08-2017 01:40 AM

correct.... further, after the first 'are you sure you want to log out' dialog box, and I click 'ok', the next window comes back as the original sign-in page, though the 'log-out' option is still present in the field, instead of clearing the field and replacing with 'log-in' word. Think I might have logged out, because whatever link I click after that, returns with the field having 'User Name' text again, in the text box.
