Hi,

I tried cup of things but nothing works:
root@kaos:/home/keos# setterm -powersave off
setterm: cannot (un)set powersave mode: Función ioctl no apropiada para el dispositivo
root@kaos:/home/keos# setterm -powersave off
setterm: cannot (un)set powersave mode: Función ioctl no apropiada para el dispositivo
root@kaos:/home/keos# setterm -blank 0
setterm: terminal xterm-256color does not support --blank
root@kaos:/home/keos#

I found the fix for mine to stop it screen going blank AntiX only so far Control Centre > Set Screen Blanking > turn on > set to 0 .

OR

stsoh
If power manager 'presentation mode' is checked, screen will always stay 'ON'.
uncheck 'presentation mode', power save will activate as predetermined. ;)
ps:
don't know where is 'presentation mode' located?
right clik power manager on the task bar and u can see it.

I have tried those methods but it didn't work. I have tried every method and no one worked. I have searched a little bit more on google and found ELMENS. Here I found that my screen is a little bit broken. I have an LCD display that is dying. It is nearly dead so it needs to be changed. I saw that it has a little crack but this somehow didn't influence. Somehow it works with a little crack in it. I have read there cracked screens are the most common risk that laptops have. It is because of their portability.
