Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-power-manager

With the latest update for karmic, my laptop (sony vpcw115x) screen will not go to sleep after a specific period of time.

I've tried the following combination of times and none of these will put screen to sleep:

screensaver time > put screen to sleep time:
"Session active, not inhibited, screen idle..." message will show in the notification area when screen sleep time reached and when screensaver time reached, the screen will turn dark, then return to normal(no screensaver)

screensaver time == put screen to sleep time:
The screen will turn dark, then return to normal (no screensaver)

screensaver time < put screen to sleep time:
When screensaver time reached, the screen will turn dark, then return to normal(no screensaver) and "Session active, not inhibited, screen idle..." message will show in the notification area when screen sleep time reached

The problem does not exist on a fresh installed copy; it only appears after the updates. Tried the command
"xset s [timeout]" the screen is able to sleep when screensaver is not set to be active or the time is longer than [timeout]; however, if the screensaver time is shorter than the [timeout] the screen will not sleep either.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. A new version of GNOME Power Manager is available on Maverick and we are wondering if this bug is still an issue for you with that version? Could you please test and comment back? Thanks in advance.
