http://www.linuxquestions.org – I installed Kubuntu 10.04 on my PC to try it out. I noticed the monitor shuts off (sleep?)after 10 minutes of inactivity. I have tried changing the gui setting for the monitor but no matter what I set them to it still goes to sleep after 10 minutes. I did find that xset -dpms will keep the monitor active throught the entire session. However, after a restart it will go back to sleep after 10 minutes. Could someone explain to me how to create a script to autostart xset. Please be specific. I had Ubuntu 10.04 in this PC just before installing Kubuntu and didn't have this problem? Many thanks. < (HowTos)
