When I  watch movies in VLC  the screen is still  switched off after
ten minutes. Preferences → Advanced  → “Inhibit the power management
daemon during  playback” is activated.  Maybe that is related  to my
problem. Still, my setting should work regardless of the application
I use.

I can't  find those. The  only settings I  find are the  “Laptop lid
close…” ones.
