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 and seems difficult to wake. 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.
