How to wake a second screen

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

If your DICE desktop has two screens you may find that one of them has gone to sleep. It can be woken in these ways:

  • Login or logout. This often wakes the second screen.
  • Hold down the Ctrl and Alt keys while you press F2. This switches the screens to a virtual text console. Wait a few seconds for the text login prompt to appear. When it has, hold down Ctrl and Alt and press F1. The computer should switch back into normal X window mode, and the second screen should wake up.
