I am having usabilitiy problems with sway edition. The screenlock/sleep interferes frequently and I want to regulate this behaviour myself. It is not a big deal when sway lock jumps in every 10 minutes or so. However, this is annoying at times; e.g. when I watch videos either in my browser or on the video player or when I read on my laptop.
I have a temporary fix by setting swayidle to kick in after 3 hours or inactivity in the system wide configuration files. However, I am seeking to have a better solution. I know there is Caffeine in the repositories; however, it seems to be using python2, which I don’t want to install and I do not want caffeine to even autostart as python 2 is dated/out of development.
Is there another way I can fix this? If I can completely disable automatic sleep/screenlocking and make it triggered only when I chooose “Lock” from the shutdown menu, I will be ok with this too; instead of using Caffeine like software.
Would appreciate any help.
