Ive been an Arch user for a long time, but I decided to give Manjaro a go on my new build, and so far I really like it. I've managed to get my setup exactly as I want it, with one niggling problem.
I'm running xfce with a dual monitor setup. I've disabled lighDM so I can boot to command line, and I've installed xfce4-screensaver so I can lock my screen. I've set the screen saver to activate after 55 mins, and (in the power manager) DPMS sleep to occur after 60 mins. The screen saver activates as expected, but it's 50/50 as to whether it then sets the monitors to standby 5 mins later.
If I force standby with the command
xset dpms force standby
I see the same issue! sometimes it goes into standby, sometimes it goes into the screen saver.
This is weird......any ideas!
here are my display options:

browsing the forums, I've just seen this Steam screws up suspend
