Re: Monitor won't go to sleep

Telsa, I got the following e-mail from you off-list:

Is it this one?

Came up on support ximian com only the other night, oddly enough.


And I tried to reply to that message but the e-mail got kicked back as
"Returned mail: user unknown", but here was my reply to your reply!:

Sounds sort of like it, but my monitor never shuts off, unlike the original
poster whose would shut off, then come back on later.

I didn't quite understand your fix though, "xscreensaver-command -prefs"
do I put this line?  (and what is it doing?)

I'm guessing I still leave the "use power management" box checked in the
control center...
