Hi guys!
So, I'm just simply trying to figure out how to change when my PC sleeps/hibernates(actually, I'm trying to configure it to not sleep/hibernate at all).
Any ideas?

Hi,

what do you mean?
Keyboard shortcuts?
How system reacts when keyboard or mouse staying untouched?
or something else?

Awesome doesn't appear to include any sort of power manager so it shouldn't have any automatic hibernation or sleep mode.

Would the problem you refer to be screen blanking by any chance? This is what Xorg does after about 15 or 30 minutes of inactivity where it puts the monitor into power save mode.

If that is the case, make a /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/40-monitor.conf and put this in it
Code:
section "ServerFlags"
Option "blank time" "0"
Option "standby time" "0"
Option "suspend time" "0"
Option "off time" "0"
Option "dpms" "false"
EndSection

Apologies if I take a while to respond. I'm currently working on the dematerialization circuit for my blue box.

I'm on Xmonad and everything like power management etc. is going through acpid/udev scripts and xautolock

maybe this is the way?
