You mentioned you checked the power options screen so I’ll put add this one even though I don’t think it is effecting you, but which you can check nonethelesss:

enter image description here

The only thing I can think of now are gnome settings which you can force off via the terminal:

gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power sleep-inactive-ac-timeout 0
gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power sleep-inactive-ac-type nothing
gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power sleep-inactive-battery-timeout 0
gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power sleep-inactive-battery-type nothing

The value of 0 seconds on lines 1 and 3 turns the function off. The nothing feature on lines 2 and 4 are like hitting it was a hammer twice.

If problem persists there are other things in systemd to look at such as xautolock but the steps above are the most obvious ones to try first.

⇧ GNU grub menu takes too long to boot I am trying to create an alias to run an application. Is there away to bypass creating an alias just to change directories?  β‡©
