do something in ScreenSaver & PowerManager.

p.s. the gnome-screen-saver program will hung up the system memory
always.

In System Settings > Screensaver (or System > Preferences > Screen
Saver if you are still using the 'classic' interface) clear the Lock
Screen checkbox and it will then not ask for the password. Also if
you click Power Management from there then you can set how long it is
before the display is put to sleep.

Best of luck with that. I first saw that problem with 9.04, it would
not fix by any settings I changed or even by removing the power manager
and screensaver packages from the system, the f***ing thing would still
blank the screen. So I gave up on 10.04 (which still had the problem)
and moved to using Mint which didn't have the proble.

About 2 weeks ago I tried a fresh install of natty? the one with the
poorly thought out icon interface. I quite liked some of the new
features, but the screen blanking problem persists, so I haven't used
it since.

Look on the bright side, at least you are getting replies to your
question, just muffle your ears a bit so you don't hear the sound of
jack boots...

Can you point us to your bug report please?

Colin,

A nicer question would have been "did you file a bug report at the time,
and can you point us to it?".

He probably didn't, because few people even know that this is possible.
And those that do find the proper way often experience some frustration.
For example I have a bug report that hasn't been fixed for a couple of
years. Every few months someone adds a new comment, but I guess the best
way to "fix" the problem, is to wait until the affected piece of hardware
has become obsolete.
