gnome-power preferences slider values do not agree with gconf settings for gnome-power-manager

Bug #228040 reported by Daniel Hook on 2008-05-08
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
gnome-power-manager (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-power-manager

Found using
Ubuntu 8.04
gnome-power-manager 2.22.1-1ubuntu4.

The values set for the time to sleep (the computer or the display) using the sliders in the gnome-power-preferences dialog do not agree with the values that can be found in gconf under apps > gnome-power-manager > timeout.

For instance, I set the slider for the delay to sleep the computer (when on battery power) to 30 minutes using the gnome-power-preferences slider. Then, when I looked at the value using gconf, it said 1200 seconds (20 minutes). I changed the value to 15 minutes in the preferences dialog and then gconf said 300 seconds (10 minutes).

Also, while fixing this request, the sliders should be adjusted so that the values can go below 11 minutes. I would like to be able to set my display sleep timeout as low as 30s without have to use gconf.

Update: The gconf values are not correct. My current display timeout says 60 seconds in gconf, but my display does NOT go to sleep after 60 seconds. This should be corrected because I would like a way to set the time to 60 seconds, but the neither the sliders nor gconf will let me do this.
