dpms can't blank display anymore

Bug #183672 reported by b52 on 2008-01-17
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
gnome-power-manager (Ubuntu)

Bug Description


I got a Lenovo T61 with nVidia Quadro NVS 140M and after installing gutsy from CD the screensaver/power-manager/xset was able to switch my display off after 6 Minutes. I'm using the xorg vesa driver because nv is not working. Now some aptitude upgrades later DPMS is not working anymore,

xset dpms force off just "blanks" the screen,
but vbetool dpms off still works and switches the screen off.

Is there a possibility to tell gnome to use vbetool??
Anyway it would be great to switch the backlight with the gnome-screensaver again.

It's because it worked already in gutsy and is gone now....?

ii xorg 1:7.2-5ubuntu13
ii xserver-xorg-core 2:
ii xserver-xorg-video-vesa 1:1.3.0-1ubuntu5
ii gnome-power-manager 2.20.0-0ubuntu6
ii gnome-screensaver 2.20.0-0ubuntu4.2

in /var/log/Xorg.0.log:
(**) Option "BlankTime" "5"
(**) Option "StandbyTime" "0"
(**) Option "SuspendTime" "0"
(**) Option "OffTime" "6"
(II) Loading extension DPMS
(**) Option "dpms" "true"
(**) VESA(0): DPMS enabled

Thanks for your help.
