Something has recently changed with Power Manager and Xscreensaver on Manjaro MATE.
My Power Manager Setting in Manjaro MATE:
Power Manager > On AC Power > Display > Put display to sleep when inactive set to Never.
This setting is now ignored.
Previously, this setting has kept Power Management from interfering with a running screensaver.
Now, I doesn’t. Screen now is blanked after 10 minutes even if Xscreensaver has already started a screensaver.
Is there a remedy for this?
I should note that this does not happen with Gnome desktop. XScreensaver still works there. I have not tested the situation with XFCE.
More info. Graphics on Manjaro MATE
dmn@Zotac ~]$ inxi -G Graphics: Device-1: Intel 3rd Gen Core processor Graphics driver: i915 v: kernel Display: x11 server: X.org 1.20.11 driver: loaded: intel unloaded: modesetting resolution: <missing: xdpyinfo> OpenGL: renderer: Mesa DRI Intel HD Graphics 2500 (IVB GT1) v: 4.2 Mesa 21.0.3
Even if the Power Manager setting is set to a specific time (I tried 1 hour), it is ignored and the screen blanks anyway at 10 minutes of inactivity. So this setting is broken.
