Monitor DPMS power off doesn't work when NIS is being used

Bug #182419 reported by manojav on 2008-01-12
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

1. In a default install of Gutsy, enable NIS as slave and a client. Setup the NIS client to talk to the local server first and then to the master NIS server.
2. Edit the /etc/passwd /etc/nsswitch.conf. To start using the NIS. Restart X or GDM.
3. You will notice that the screen saver is launched with the correct timing, but the Power management settings aren't every taken into effect.
4. Login with the NIS user and credentials.

"xset dpms force off" continues to work fine.

Can some others confirm this? How can i debug the power management process? i.e Where can I see the OS trying to do a DPMS off?

I had give up trying to use this combination, I have stopped using NIS for my passwords. I haven't tried this in Hardy, Please close/invalidate this bug. When I get around to it, I will try and validate it with Hardy or Interpid at which time i will reopen this issue.
