I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 LTS the Lucid Lynx. Should I ugrade to 11.10? I
did an upgrade recently when I got a message a new version was available,
I thought it was to the newest version.

you can upgrade if you like.
to check what version of ubuntu you are currently using you can use this guide.
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CheckingYourUbuntuVersion

to upgrade from 10.04 to 10.10 see
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MaverickUpgrades

then from 10.10 to 11.04 see
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/NattyUpgrades

then
http://www.ubuntu.com/download/ubuntu/upgrade

i would recommend backing up your important files and data before any upgrades.

in 10.04 you can check system - preferences - power settings and screensaver for your screen turning off.

you don't need to upgrade to 11.10.
just click on your power icon and select preferences to disable sleep/hibernate/screen lock. or you can go under system>preferences>screensaver and do the same thing. it's also available under system>preferences>power management.

I upgraded to 11.4 and then changed my power settings and screensaver
prefrences and that fixed it.

Thank you
