Hi all,
Sorry for the cross-post. I dunno where this query might be relevant
hence posting to both.

 I have a mixed ubuntu & xubuntu Intrepid (8.10) setup. Which means
sometimes I login to ubuntu while sometimes I login to xubuntu.

While in Ubuntu if there is no activity either by mouse or by the
keyboard, the monitor goes into power-safe mode. in xubuntu it

Now I do not know why it doesn't do this. So I wanna find the following :-

a. Which daemon of the two are running atm, is there a way to find out.
        From what I know its
       1. gnome-power-preferences
       2. xscreensaver-demo

b.  Is there any other tool or any other configuration I need to be
aware of while in xubuntu?

Looking forward to comments, suggestions on the same.
