SLES9 Monitor Poweroff/Screensaver


Perhaps I just cannot find this, but I have screensavers set to 20 minutes, and to lock. Even with these settings, the monitor keeps powering off after 5 minutes. I cannot find anything on Powersaving. Where can I look to fix this?

Thanks!

Does SLES9 run kde?
If so,

right click desktop
configure desktop
screen saver
check - start automatically after 20 mins
check - make aware of power management
select 'display' on the previous panel
power control tab
make sure standby is set for 20 minutes or more

Correction

Thanks for the reply. Yes, I am running KDE. There is no such Power Control tab anywhere. I even went browsing through YaST, and cannot find anything related to that. Could it exist in some other place that I am not aware of?

Did you enable APM or ACPI when you installed? I'd think those would be the key to seeing a power control tab.
