Does increasing the time for screensaver to tick in help? I.e., settings -> screensaver. Your solution might beto turn off hibernation. Does locking the screen beforeit sleeps help?Sheng-Chieh
I'm using Ubuntu 12.04. I used to use gnome-screensaver.. but.. it happened too many times that when I closed the lid of my notebook, it suspended itself, OK, but after I wanted to turn it on again.. it just showed me my desktop instead of the login screen... (yes locking IS ENABLED)
Q: So is it wiser to use xscreensaver, rather then the default gnome-screensaver?
I just installed 9.10 I've noticed a small problem. The screensaver works fine when my laptop is running on AC power, but when it runs on battery power, the screensaver doesn't appear when locking the screen or waiting for it to activate. The screen does fade to black, and locks, but no screensaver...just a black screen.
and how do i set the screen saver to be a single image
I just upgraded my Fedora 18 to 19 via fedup and everything seemed to work ok. I installed Cinnamon to check it out and that went ok but I went back to the new Gnome 3 shell. However now I noticed that the screensaver is not activated. The screen just dims when it should go blank. I've set all the required settings and like II say it responds after the idle time but the screen just barely dims.
I have Lubuntu 14.04 installed and it keeps locking the screen after about 5 minutes of inactivity(which requires a password). I want to stop this, but I can't tell what screensaver is doing it. I tried to see in Synaptic, which screensaver was installed, and came up with nothing. Trying an <apt-get xscreensaver remove> also produced nothing.
