I am using PCLinuxOS MiniMe 2009.1 Kde 3 on my usb. I am having a strange problem. Any data cd or dvd disks I enter in my dvd rom or dvd burner I get this Konqueror error: mount: mount point /media/cdrom2 does not exist and mount: mount point /media/cdrom does not exist. The same errors appear when I try to watch some dvd or cd movies. I am not understanding why this is happening. I cannot access to the contents of cd or dvd, watch movies and burn blank cd\dvd disks.
In the KDesktop, the Display Settings, then in Power Control, I always keep the Suspend after and Power off after at 1 or 2 minutes. But the monitor does not turn off. Only a black screen appears. I tried many times my changing the times but the monitor remains on forever except for the appearance of the black screen. Why this is happening I don't know. Its quite confusing.
Friends, I will appreciate any kind of help for the above problems now I am suffering. Thanks in advance.
1. Your problems with the CD/DVD disks result from having improper configurations. The applications should be set to read devices, not mount points; ie /dev/cdrom
2. Suspend does not equal shut down, or turn off. Suspend, by design, just blanks the screen, until you move the mouse or press a key, at which point the screen should again show your desktop. The power off should be set for quite some time after the suspend takes effect. Something like suspend after 5 minutes idle, power off after 30 minutes idle, would be reasonable if you want these features.
I personally find these features so annoying and unreliable that I turn them off from the get go. If I want my monitor turned off, I can press the button, and having the screen go blank while I'm studying a set of long technical instructions only makes my blood pressure go up, along with my desire to do grave bodily harm to whoever is responsible for the existence of said "feature".
