About 5 years ago, I made a suggestion to add a “custom” box where a user could enter a value in minutes to control turning off the monitor or going into suspend mode.
Had that suggestion been accepted and worked on, there WERE at least 6 other request for additions to to the timeout value ranging from 1 to 5 minutes, and 30 minutes to several hours.
In my case I made the request because I was having to change the time-out to NEVER to avoid have a reference screen go dark on me while participating in a one or two hour teleconference or presentation. And after the conference would have to remember to reset it to a “reasonable” value. (and would sometimes forget…)
Others have made valid points about needing a one or two minutes timeout on smart-phones, and yet others needed a value that was somewhat longer that 15 minutes.
Not have seen the code for the power settings, I would imagine that it should not be too difficult to allow a value in minutes to be entered into a box…
… result: a relatively simple change that provides user choice.
I just received a notice this morning that many “problems” on this subject previously reported to GetLib were closed around 7:45 this morning. Interesting way to promote the illusion of “nothing needs to be improved”.
I do understand the need for a problems only area, and a separate area for Enhancement requests. Is this for enhancements? But I do not understand where I am supposed to make requests now…
