Hello there! Would like to seek some inputs with regards to Mate’s (Ubuntu 16.04.4 LTS) behavior of having random idle time outs.
Problem: Observing idle timeout intervals of 10s, 20s, 30s, 40s randomly. “Dim display when idle” is ticked in the Mate Power Management Preferences.
Tshoot steps made:
Tried using “gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power idle-dim-time 60” but idle-dim-time is not initially listed from org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power.gschema.xml (https://askubuntu.com/questions/98184/increase-screen-idle-dim-timeout)
Added idle-dim-time from the step above and initially applied 10s value but still getting random idle times
Edited via dconf editor GUI for newly added idle-dim-time but still has random idle times
All help would be highly appreciated!
