XFCE power settings reset on wakeing from slee mode

so i’m pretty sure to’ve set my xfce power manager off putting my laptop in sleep mode but after restarting the us i guess
it was default

also my screen brightness which i ignored before and planned on looking into but idk it might be due to the screen/driver or whatever… not a priority at the moment
but i don’t need too bright of a screen and it keeps resting

any idea what may be the cause/should i change
this might be a bug or just something qubes/fedora relate?

regarding the edit… no i did not notice really when could be happening after restarting could be happening after sleep mode

maybe it’s a known issue so…
not that important but…

Feel free to suggest a better title. But something that better reflects the issue.
