Thanks for the quick answer, much appreciated. I may get grumpy on this
one, hopefully no-one takes offence.

It's a GNOME change to comply with EU regulations, believe it or not:
OK it seems an interpretation of an EU regulation has finally convinced
me BrExit might actually have an upside. :-(
I think GNOME developers should also read 7.b.3.b:
Equipment shall, unless inappropriate for the intended use, offer a
power management function or a similar function.
GNOME can certainly count in the inappropriate for the intended use
In any event this should be an easily opt out of.
It should be configurable in the Power panel of the control center.
Do you know if there is there a way of setting it without logging in to
the console device? GNOME will hopefully not then reset a value it has
no right to set without consent.
My set up has a server, one workstation/server, and three laptops all
up and working. I am only logged into one. Now the workstation/server
(which should never stop as it has a server role) and two laptops
spontaneously suspend, which f#### everything up. :-(
I guess I am going to have a problem with my server which actually has
GNOME installed for various reasons.
