I have a bit of a weird problem I think. I run Ubuntu linux right now and I have a problem with my screen shutting off. When I watch movies or video clips on my computer it does not realize that I am using the computer and every minute the screen turns off which is quite an annoyance to have to move the mouse or hit a key every minute. I also have my screen saver shut off. I originally thought this might be a setting in my bios ( It is a toshiba satellite A45 by the way) but I cannot find anything in there that fixes the problem. I also have all Power Management disabled for the computer. I used to rune SuSE linux a while back and I never had this problem. I have tried asking in the ubuntu forusm but they cannot figure out what is going on so I thought id try a notebook specific forum. Thanks for any help.
