Yesterday evening around 23:00 I closed the lid at 96% batttery, and this morning around 09:00 when I opened it (and everything seemed to work again : ) the battery was at 94%, which looks pretty good to me Smile\

Looks like something weird is going on with the "Dim screen" option in the Energy Saving settings. After it goes dim, it goes more dim, and then the screen goes black, as if it is switched off. It's only the screen that is off then. After the screen has switched off, CAPS lock is still on, USB stick light still burns, etc. but moving the trackpad, clicking the buttons, using the keyboard does not turn the screen on again. Putting the pinebook to suspend and back again makes the screen work again. And it looks like if you choose 5 minutes at screen dim, it dims after 2.5 minutes and goes black after 5 minutes (and stays black, untill manually suspend, resume). 

p.s. if you set the "Screen Energy Saving" to a smaller value than the "Dim screen" one, than the screen goes normally off, and can be turned on normally, e.g. by moving the trackpad.

Turning screen dim off for now ;-)

I have been fighting with this issue since yesterday - screen locking is off, but I wasn't able to turn the screen dimming and screen energy saving off, it always reactivated itself ...

My solution is in the Per-Activity Power Management - clicking on Define a special behaviour - and checking Never shutdown the screen.

This leaves the screen always on, but the Pinebook doesn't freeze - it lasted whole night, compared to freezing every 10-20 minutes when left untouched.
