• Xubuntu 14.04

When locking my screen, my monitor/screen turns off immediately.

I don't want that to happen immediately, I'd like to have period of about 20-60 minutes or so between the two things. Is that possible?

Whatever I set the first two sliders to, invoking xflock4 via Ctrl + Shift + Del always switches my monitor off:

Not really an answer to the question above, but a solution to mitigate the problem of turning off the monitor:

sudo apt-get remove --purge light-locker && sudo apt-get install xscreensaver

The solution is to disable Light locker, (do this first) then remove light locker

sudo apt-get remove light-locker

and then install gnome-saver

sudo apt-get install gnome-screensaver
