Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: mythtv

I do apologize for the confusing summary.

I recently connected another monitor to my computer (which was a whole
slew of issues that are almost resolved). I've noticed that with the
monitor standby power setting set (which currently is at 5 minutes), the
monitors go into standby regardless of whether or not the computer is in
use. So, even if I'm using the computer, the monitors will still fade
away and shut off, but quickly turned back on when I press a key or move
the mouse (meaning, standby works as properly, except it always goes to
standby, whether idle or not).

Before I connected the new monitor, standby worked properly and would
not go into standby unless the computer was idle or not being used.

I run MythTV on a separate monitor. I use the other monitor for all of
my other computer activities (Internet, documents, graphics, etc.). It
seems that if MythTV is running but nothing is being done within the
program, the computer will send both of the monitors in to standby mode.
If I move my mouse or type a key on the MythTV screen, it seems to
prevent the issue (meaning standby works).

I hope this sums up the issue. It seems to be difficult to really say
what the issue is.
