I am running Ubunut 14.04 and when the monitor goes to sleep the ssh connection is lost. I can't figured out why these two correlated. I had through perhaps the system was going into hibernate mode or some sort of sleep mode, but I don't think the system is going into a sleep or hibernate mode (if it does I can't figured out how to determine this).
In the "Brightness & Lock" screen the "Turn screen off when inactive for: " is configured for 5 minutes. Lock is disabled. "Require my password when waking from suspend" is checked and when the monitor awakes the password screen is present. So, I think the system is going into suspend mode, but in the "Power" screen the "Suspend when inactive for" is set to "Don't suspend".
So, I am at a lost as to why I am losing my ssh connection when the monitor is going to sleep. Thanks.
Edit: I failed to mention, I am actively using the ssh connection from another machine when I notice the monitor go dark and shortly thereafter I lose the ssh connection.
Edit: Also found out that my Samba share folder disappears within Windows. So, now more confused than before.
