12.10 inactive timeout not working

Asked by Robin Scott on 2012-10-23

After updating to 12.10 my screen will not remain on constantly as desired.
I have set Brightness and Lock "Trun off when inactive for" 'Never', but the screen still turns off after a few moments of inactivity.
This was not a problem with 12.4. Is there a fix for this?

Thanks, Robin
