Hi, guys. I want to make Manjaro turn off screen quickly after locking screen. For example, I press
Meta+L to lock screen, then the screen will be off automatically in 5 seconds but if I am using my computer not locking, the screen won’t turn off in 5 seconds.
I used to work on Windows with this feature and felt good, so I want to have it in Manjaro.
I have try to bind
Meta+L to cmd
xset dpms force off&xdg-screensaver lock. But it didn’t work sometimes and it is not quickly but immediately.
I have google it and get no answer so I have to post it here for help. This is my first post, if you need more information, please ask me to post it. Thank you in advance!
I am using KDE.
do you want to turn off your screen automatically after 5 seconds of inactivity?
Is wrongly writed; maybe you mean
xset dpms force off && xdg-screensaver
Do you want it instant?
xdg-screensaver lock && sleep 5s && xset dpms force off
I want to turn off my screen automatically after 5 seconds when screen is locking.
I tried your cmd but screen didn’t turn off after 5s. Same when I ran it in terminal. It just made my screen locking.
EDIT: I tried
xdg-screensaver lock; sleep 5; xset dpms force off and it worked perfectly. Thank you so much.
Thank you for pointing out my mistake! I get this cmd
xdg-screensaver lock; sleep 5; xset dpms force off working perfectly.
