Add a button to the Status menu to turn off/blank the screen
Add a button to the Status menu to turn off/blank the screen.
Currently the "Lock" button can turn off/blank the screen, but it also does lock the screen! and the minimum time for "Blank Screen" in the "Settings" program is "1 minute" which is very high.
So such button should be provided to make users able to do it just when they need to turn off/blank the screen, without locking the screen.
How would you like it to work
One sub-menu should be created in the "Status menu" to contain all related functions: "Power Off" "Restart/Reboot" "Lock" "Suspend" "Log out" and "Blank/Turn Off screen"
current situation of Status menu looks very ugly and crowded
such function should be provided by easy-access alongside screen locking.
I regularly leave my system several times in every 60/30 min for 1:30 or 2:00 min and do not need to lock my screen, because either there is no other person to can touch my system or they are trusted and don't do it.
In such environment, locking the screen is not necessary and is not the best solution, because entering a password several times in every 60/30 min is not a simple and easy UX, maybe it is not hard and time wasting for those who have a laptop or a fingerprint device, but on a regular desktop PC without a fingerprint device, having to enter a password several times in every 60/30 min has highly pain.
My logic and reason to doing and needing this feature, is to save the energy and the screen/monitor life/age, specially with considering the climate change
