There was no video at the time the screen failed to turn off. But I had played
videos earlier on reddit and it's possible they crashed for reasons.

Like I said earlier, this is not easy to debug because I have little idea how
it got into that state.

That's why I was hoping there was a way to check it's state through GUI or CLI.

I thought you said there was a video playing.

So was there anything you know of that would have disabled power management?

I don't think there was any video open in any tabs. I didn't get any crash
notifications. So I can't really be sure about anything.

Is there a way I can check powerdevil to see if it's alive and well?

Is there a way to turn it back on?

Hmm, I'm not sure how we could resolve this, because it's deliberate that
playing videos inhibits sleep.

When this happened, was a video or audio still playing, or had it crashed? If
the latter then there may be something we can do, but if the former, I don't
think there's any way the system can read your mind and know that you want the
computer to go to sleep in the middle of a playing video. :)

Youtube videos embedded in web pages, probably.

I get the sense that some of the embedded html5 players and gif players might
disable screen saver as well. I've left them playing because circumstance and
come back to find the screen not locked. Then when i close the tab, everything
goes back to normal.

I've actually thought about how to correct something like this, but it's tough
because you can't tell if the video crashed before being able to re-enable the
screen saver. I guess if you have a timeout, say two hours or something you'll
just annoy the user if he's really watching a video for that long.

Clearly the screen saver enable code should be in a finally: statement, heh.

> It may be related to videos disabling screen savers and then crashing.

That is very likely. What kinds of videos are we talking about?
