[Bug 1580553] Re: Inactive screen on laptop turns back on immediately after blanking
ubuntu-bug and its documentation makes it very hard to post a bug that
is actually related to power management. I told it that it was an apport
bug in order to get into the system at all.

Inactive screen on laptop turns back on immediately after blanking
Status in linux package in Ubuntu:
Inactive laptop screen fades to blank, then immediately brightens
again showing the login screen, and stays lit.
This happens whether the laptop if charging or running on battery.
The problem occurs with both the gnome screensaver package installed
and with xscreensaver.
Indicators in the status bar in addition to the default ones include
Classic Menu indicator
System Load indicator
(I have been running the same set of indicators on a different, 14.04, laptop without them interfering with screen blanking behavior)
Charging with the screen lit seems very slow and discharge seems fast,
but this is a new laptop that came with 16.04 installed, so I don't
really have a basis for comparison.
I have not installed TLP on this laptop.
