I want all power saving features completely disabled, forever. Somebody helped with this before but despite me not changing anything and having it work as desired for a long time, it broke again recently.
Would somebody please tell me how I can restore the desired behavior? I don’t want the display to turn off, ever. And I don’t want any power saving at all on this box.
I’m using i3wm as my window manger, I don’t use gnome or kde.
Power management has been changed to powerprofiles and as such, on my system it defaulted to balanced after upgrade and only made available options for power saver mode or balanced mode, and I run a desktop PC no less! Admittedly with a newish MB, but anyway it (the upgrade from F33) did the change on me without notice at the user level. Still not entirely satisfied with the power management on my system, and would be really “steamed” (no pun intended) if I couldn’t overclock to play high motion games for instance.
After I followed the example on the page that @oprizal linked about disabling suspend and hibernation mode, the problem persisted. I rebooted and it seems the problem did happen once.
But after that, it seems to be ok, the screen is not turning off. I am not 100% sure this is fixed but it is definitely much better.
I did find I had a few xset commands in my .xinitrc but at some point (probably when I removed tons and tons and tons of gnome stuff trying to diagnose/fix this issue over the past 2 days, xset was removed). I reinstalled it. So, with all these changes I can not conclude which one(s) helped.
