Hi,

I try to unable the fact that my screen goes in safe mode on my linux machine.
I have a Red Hat 8.1 whit gnome session.
I am sure it's a linux porblem because when I boot on a DOS diskette, my screen stays always on.

So, I have searched in screensaver properties, display properties and many others porperties
whitout find what I want.

I should think the screensaver properties were the good place to modify.
When I unable this property in the screensaver properties or not, the result is the same.

I have seen with a "ps -ef" a line with [kapmd] ( I don't remmenber the meaning of the [ ]).
When I run /etc/init.d/apmd status, that tells me "process is stopped".

Somebody knows where I could resolve this problem ?

Best regards

Try :

xset s off

If it works, we can take it from there.

Thank you for your help

It was almost the good argument for this command.
In fact, when I have used "xset s off", the hope effect has never come..
But with "xset -dpms", it was good !!!
