Display screen going blank
The problem is the screen goes blank after half an hour or so, even if I have set the Power Management option to "NEVER" for AC power and Battery, and a gnome screen saver is also there.
After this also the screen goes black/blank and never comes up on mouse movement or keypress, only option is to reboot the system. Also the vertual terminals are blank(Can't switch Alt+Ctrl+F1 etc.).
Hi and Welcome !
Post the contents of /etc/X11/xorg.conf file here.
The screen blanking here is being done by your X server not by the secreen saver, so the solution is to change your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file. Edit it as the root user (use 'sudo' or 'su') and add these to the 'ServerLayout' section:
Option "OffTime" "0" Option "BlankTime" "0" Option "StandbyTime" "0" Option "SuspendTime" "0"Linux user #126863 - see http://linuxcounter.net/
