Default Monitor blinks off in the middle of mouse/kbd activity

I must wait 20ish minutes until it goes into sleep mode for it to
respond to a kbd press or mouse wiggle.


There's nothing in syslog or Xorg.0.log to

Attached is the contents of "dmesg | tail". The difficulty with
blaming nouveau is that this started while I was still using the
nvidia driver.


Could it be that my (old) video card or not-so-old-but-cheap monitor
are on the fritz?

Your monitor blinks off in the middle of doing things, That's a pain.
What does the 20 mins have to do with it?


Get another card or monitor whichever is the cheapest and try again if
we can't blame nouveau. (You switched?)

Running GNOME? If so, it could be #370692

http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=370692

Try running xscreensaver under XFCE and see if it makes a difference.
Try "xset q" as shown in the bug report to see if this really is the
same issue.

Roger

No. XFCE.

It's exactly the *opposite*, since it blinks off when I'm in the
middle of doing something.

So what do you do when you are in the middle of typing and the screen
blinks off?

At first, I'd go watch TV until the monitor went into sleep mode.
Then I found a work-around of power-cycling the monitor. (I hadn't
turned off the monitor since I bought it, since it spends so much
time in sleep mode...)
