Only when booted to single status. But It let me set it right now without 
asking for the old pw.  But then xrandr got in the way, couldn't read a 
valid gamma setting. xrandr is not your problem though.  Now I suppose 
I'll have to use it for everything.  And thats a right pita too as its 
quite a few more characters. But now I can't run synaptic from the tde 
menu's, as root or gene. And gksudo, my only way to run synaptic, 
brought up a whole new default jessie config.  Jessie ???  Supposed to 
be stretch, call me confused.

I hope I've not broken it. But ack xset -q, I have set a longer 
blank/monitor shutdown, and thats an improvement, I am  plumb tired of 
going after a fresh refill of my coffee cup, a 15 foot walk from this 
chair, coming back and having the monitor power down as by butt 
approaches the chair cushion. Now I need to go check on the missus, 
who'se in the shop with end stage copd.  And now pneumonia.
