I've noticed that one too. I looked at a 60 minutes science show
on streaming media and suddenly it got down but moving the mouse
got it back.

so if somebody know what to do about it that would be cool.
If you are good at searching using google use the link in my signature.

Sounds like dpms. You can switch it off by using xset. Here is gui to do it.

---So, do I just download the pet you posted and install? Does that fix the screensaver bug? Will it add a button to my power saving panel or will it just fix things and still look the same?

I dont know what is power saving panel. But the pet installs menu entry under Utility. Xset screensaver manager. Launch it. Put all settings off and there shouldnt be any automatic display blackening. If the problem comes from dpms.

When you watch streamed video, the dpms will be triggered at default intervals. I suffer from that when watching streamed video through my laptop via hdmi to the lcd tv. I use that pet to disable dpms default settings.

This is the panel I am talking about, " Power Management Preferences". This is how I have my computer set when I watch movies. I will go and download the PET. Thanks for explaining where to look for it.

EDIT: I downloaded the PET, double clicked it and it said installed. It said it was in the Setup Menu. I looked there and Utility. No new entry called " Xset screensaver manager". Sad

Sorry. I had Setup as menu entry when I did dir2pet. Now the pet has been fixed so that it appears in Utility.

Natgab. I dont recognize that setting panel. I believe you are not using JWM. Your setup looks like xfce desktop. If so...I know nothing about it. Are you really using Slacko or do you use some derivative based on Slacko. If you are using derivative, then you should probably ask about the problem in that thread also.

Basically what you need is, in console: xset -dpms s off

I suppose your power management settings panel provides something like that with right options also.

PupControl has the syntax also: /usr/local/PupControl/func
Quote:
xset s off dpms 0 0 0 -dpms

under Desktop > Screensaver Control, you can find option to set screensaver and dpms off.

The pet I provide has the similar function to enable and disable screensaver and dpms. It is just one purpose pet.

It is indeed a derivative. Lxpup 13.01 with MATE desktop, ROX and the single click drive me crazy. Razz I will switch back to JWM and try the fix, maybe I will only need to switch Desktops to watch movies.

If that does not work, I will just get another USB and use a Lucid Puppy just for watching movies.

PostPosted: Tue 05 Mar 2013, 16:38    Post subject: Slacko 5.4 with firefox Shutdown problems  

I'm using Slacko 5.4 in live mode booting from a CDR.
All hardware detected but when I shutdown or issue a shurdown command
like:

shutdown -h 0

My computer does not power off and monitor just displays a black screen-
possibly an ACPI issue or maybe I just need to a append a boot command.

Also, after using Slacko puppy if I try to reboot same thing happens, pc never powers down and monitor no picture on monitor (monitor has power just black screen).

This is no big deal I just hit reset button on tower case to reboot.

Hardware is Intel P5 750
Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD3
500G SATA HDD
ATI HD5770 graphics card.

Your sanity can be maintained.

Right-click on an icon in a ROX-Filer window and select Options from the menu, or right-click on an icon on the desktop (ROX-Filer pinboard) and select ROX-Filer -> Options. Either way you should get to a dialog box where you can untick:

Filer windows -> Window behaviour -> Single-click navigation

and

Pinboard -> Pinboard behaviour -> Single-click to open
