Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I installed Ubuntu for the first time 3 weeks ago and I really love it. I have Ubuntu 12.04. My only problem is that when screen saver is on, it just shows blank screen, and not turning off the monitor, so my monitor is always on.

I have Samsung E2220 - 22". I looked over the web and I found this command:

sudo xset dpms force off

This command shuts down my screen so I don't see a reason why the screen saver can't shut it down.

Thanks a lot! Elad
