Hi there.

Im new to fedora (ubuntu user) and I have a little problem with screensaver.

In power managment settings I have screensaver set for 5 min. And it works fine, after 5 mins or locking workstation displays turns off, but after few seconds they are turning on. They remains blank but they are on - displays black color instead of being completely off.

Fedora 27, Gnome 3.26.2, Gtx 1060, Ryzen 1500x, 2 Monitors

Not a big issue, I can turn off monitors by hand, but it is bothering me a lot.

On Windows 10, similar to Windows 8.1, the operating system features a Lock screen before you sign in to your account. The new experience showcases date and time, quick status for apps you choose, and more importantly a background image, which typically, users opt to display personal pictures or those from Windows Spotlight.The beauty of Windows is that you can configure the same feature in a number of ways. Alternatively, you can use the PowerCfg.exe utility to change you display timeout setting when your computer is locked. When it's connected to AC power or when your device is running on battery (DC power).To change the Lock screen timeout using Command Prompt, do the following:Use the Windows key + X keyboard shortcut to open the Power User menu and select Command Prompt (admin).Type the following command and press Enter:powercfg.exe /SETACVALUEINDEX SCHEMECURRENT SUBVIDEO VIDEOCONLOCK 60.Important: You must change "60" in the command-line with the timeout time you want to use, in seconds. For example, if you want the screen to turned on for 5 minutes, then you need to use 300 at the end of the command.
