What applications are open. If applications create idle inhibitors, then this will affect the time the display takes to go to sleep, that is intentional.

Also, the 1 minute is on top of the time taken for the display to dim. The time to dim is variable (again, this is intentional), so that if you wiggle your mouse as soon as the display dims, gnome-power-manager automatically increases the dim time so that it doesn't keep pestering you.

The original bug report was specifically about not using CPU load for display dimming / blanking, which is already fixed. Please don't hijack and reopen bugs that are already fixed
