      Forum software upgrade   10/29/17

      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

How do I defeat screen powersaver - asus p5k

Recommended Posts



I am running Mandriva 2010.2 on my asus p5k based system. I am trying to view streaming media (sports) and after about 15 minutes the screen goes blank - rest of system is still running (can hear the sound still). A little mouse movement brings the screen back. I have disabled the screen saver (system settings / desktop) which apparently does not help with the blanking issue. Is this with the P5K powersaving or with Linux? Fix please ....


Thanks -- Roger
