More tips from strangers on the internet.

I joined a Discord server which is not something I would normally do. The problem I face in life is that I am surrounded by creative people but very few of them are in to text configuration files. For some reason I am not sure why.

Well, one day I was talking to some folk and found out about Display Power Management Signaling. I know right! When I was in Mac land I would regularly sleep my display which would trigger the lock screen so I could go make a cup of tea. I wasn’t sure how to do the same on Linux. I didn’t want to put the machine to sleep or hibernation or whatever because that was chunky to start back up again. Not to mention sometimes my wifi wouldn’t come back on.

xset dpms force off && slock

With these commands I am that bit closer to my old habbit. Thanks hexDSL!
