@Aravisian , I just tried
xset s 60. But it appears to work the same exact way. I dont think it will help. However, I've made some progress.
So, I need to mention something, when i print something, 30% of the time my taskbar will malfunction and become all messed up.
This is what my taskbar looks like normally:
--The taskbar will malfunction, and will become this nightmare:
I lose the time & date,etc. And i have to scroll left & right to move around and see all the pinned shortcuts, its all messed up. This only happens when i print something. I'm not sure the dimming always causes this, it might. And this malfunction only occurs 30% of all the times i print something, not always.
How i figured out how to return it to normal is i go to "Tweaks", see screenshot:
Then I go to Extensions>Zorin Taskbar:
Then i turn it off & on again. And that fixes it. And I'm back to the below again:
However point of all this is is the freezing particularly happens at a much higher rate when i'm printing something. But the dim screen will also freeze when i'm not printing too.
Sometimes when I'm printing something i'll step away for 60 seconds, come back from the printer & the screen is then black/dimmed and then i wake the screen up.
Then this happens for a split second, this "blue screen with the time", it was very hard to get a screenshot of this, in a millisecond the screen awakens and goes from black to this below, and then to the regular desktop & windows/programs:
Then in the screenshot below the blue screen with the time quickly goes up, in an upward motion and disappears and brings me to the desktop, you can see it moving up and then disappearing completely, which brings me to the normal desktop interface:
This is the exact time it always freezes, but it doesnt always happen, I'd say 30% of the time it freezes.
When it does freeze, i can see all the programs & stuff like the screenshot above, and i can move my mouse around, but i cant interact with anything, and no matter what keys i press either. Sometimes depending where my cursor is pointed, the cursor will change, but it wont correlate to what i'm looking at, or what window is at the front, my cursor will change to a "caret," "i-cursor" or "I-beam," cursor:
Which is probably from the 2nd window which is the internet browser behind the GIMP window thats at the front.
Also, something important to mention, is that when my screen freezes the taskbar icons change from the 1st ones on the left to a slightly different look on the right, its all bizarre:
