I have a freshly installed ubuntu 14.04.

In settings "Brightness and locking" I had the following Settings:

Turn monitor off after "10 Minutes"

Locking: On

Monitor locking after "5 Minutes" and "Ticked" Ask for password ...

(Sorry my System is in German, hopefully I have the right translation).

What happens:

System gets locked after 5 Minutes but never turns off. I always see the login Screen.

I tried to switch the times (First turn off, then login etc...) but always the same result. I can, however manually select standby. Then the monitor switches off. But then i can't wake up the system anymore. No Mouse or Keyboard reaction...

I have the standard Ubuntu graphics driver installed. No extra atm (fglrx) etc.

Here is a example screenshot of my settings. Monitor does not turn off after 10 Minutes. I also tried "Monitor off after 5 Minutes and Screenlock after 10 Minutes". Monitor does not turn off.

Screenshot settings

Because of 2 comments telling me "It turns off AFTER 10 Minutes". Well I know it's not meant to turn off immediately. But it is not turning off after 10 minutes and not after 30 minutes and not tomorrow ;)

    Well. Please again read the question. As i write: No matter what settings, it does not turn off. – rechengehirn Jun 19 '14 at 7:21

It looks like its a bug. See here.

The fix is to install Unity source release 7.2.1, . The file to be downloaded Unity 7.2.1 "14.04 SRU 1" is also listed on the same Launchpad page.
