Hello,

well, two days ago I watched a movie without interruption from the 
screen saver,
it WAS great!!!  Yesterday it was back to square one, every ten minutes the
screen would go to sleep???  My settings:

in /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Section "ServerFlags"
     Option "BlankTime" "0"
     Option "StandbyTime" "0"
     Option "SuspendTime" "0"
     Option "OffTime" "0"
EndSection

In the Power Manager > Screen:

Both settings are set to «Never».

In the Screen Saver settings:

Mode: Blank Screen Only.

Blank After: 467 minutes
Cycle After: 236 minutes
Lock Screen After: 325 minutes

No matter what, the screen saver kicks in after 10-15 minutes???

Any insights???

Thanks,

Gérald
