Hey Guys,

i got a very annoying problem with my dell display.

my system is awesomely recognized from hte kalyway 10.5.2 Installation. But there iss THIS little thing that iss pretty,pretty annoying for me:


I set up my exposé:

Top right corner > display sleep.


After this I move the mouse in the top right corner and the display will go to sleep (not the system). But at this moment it's done. My system don't care if I move the mouse or press any key - it will not reactivate my display.


If I go to sleep mode (lidclose) the system hibernate. after reopenig the lid the display is back online.

That is a quite big problem if your about to convert HD-AVCHD. That action takes hardcore about 6-8 hours. So while my dellintosh is doing that, i could really safe energy while getting my display-screen in sleepmode. But if it don't awake after moving the mouse I got no chance to check if the conversion is done yet. And when i then go to sleep - the conversion broke up. That iss "$=)(%§%.


Thanks for the help guys. :thumbsup_anim:


oh, and sorry for my english - i just arrived here in california a month ago.

Sure I did.

But I found nothing about Display Sleep.

Normal (System)Sleep and Hibernation is functional - but no display sleep...
