How to disable GDM screen saver/power manager

Asked by Cletus Lichte

How do I turn off the screen saver/power manager in GDM?? I've tried gksudo -u gdm gconf-edit, but it's empty. I can't find any settings in /var/lib/gdm. I've tried gnome-screensaver-preferences and gnome-power-preferences as user gdm, but again, nothing. This screen blanking is causing problems and I need to shut it off.

If you can't shut it off from the system preferences, the only way left is to deactivate the power management in the startup applications. This will deactivate all the power saving options once you restart your computer.

Can you help with this problem?
