comment Cannot permanently prevent power saving blank screen on Compaq Presario C700 with Ubuntu 12.10
... there's also talk of using software called 'Caffeine' but this is not available from the Software Center - which makes me a little cautious. If this is a bug being addressed for the next release (how can I find out?), it's probably not with the trouble. If it's not on the celestial fix list, has anyone a better suggestion than a lifelong caffeine addiction? Here's a typical caffeine link askubuntu.com/questions/129541/…

Sorry for the delay in responding. I'm glad you've got it working. I hope this item has helped a few folks out there with HP laptop Christmas presents to have a slightly better 'holiday' than would otherwise have been the case.

I have found this relevant [bug report] (bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xorg-server/+bug/1072531) I have also tried editing dconf power settings as per [this item] (askubuntu.com/questions/207131/screensaver-blanking-problem) with no success.

correction - after some trial and error I found that GRUB will NOT appear if Secure Boot is set to ENABLED. It must be set to DISABLED.

One final but important point - after some trial and error I found that GRUB will appear if Secure Boot is set to ENABLED. It must be set to DISABLED.
