Sun Ray Software - Version SRS 5.4 to SRS 5.4.4 [Release 5.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When using Sun Ray Server (SRS) 5.4.x and attempting to active the Gnome-screensaver in a session from a Sun Ray Client, it is not able to be activated.  In addition, monitors do not enter power-saving mode (i.e. always stay on).

In /var/log/message, the following message is seen:


gnome-session[3973]: WARNING: GSIdleMonitor: IDLETIME counter not found


The output of "xset -q" shows:
