Shut down the monitor automatically under X

Shut down the monitor automatically under X

Post by Tsung-Han Yan » Tue, 11 Feb 1997 04:00:00



Hi:
  Does anyone know how to shut down the green monitor under X window?
  I use "setterm -powersave on" under normal Linux console. it works
well, but it does not shut down the monitor when I am running X window.

Add a line reading  Option "power_saver" in the Display section of your  XF86Config file.

Shut down the monitor automatically under X

Post by Robert Ewa » Wed, 12 Feb 1997 04:00:00


I'd like to do the same thing, but I don't see a Display section. There
are monitor, device, and screen sections, however.

I'm also trying to get xdm to start in a color depth other that 8-bit, if
you can help with that it would be appreciated.

1. New IBM 15 gb hard drive shuts down automatically?

Hi,
    I was wondering if the shutdown is a function of the new
hard drive that has some internal intelligence and a timer built in
or a function of my system bios. I have an old Pentium
166 with a 1995 bios.
