There might be a file in some temporarily location more important,
assuming that powering down the monitor happens during running user
session. Btw. this kind of opacity of desktop environments, especially
such as Xfce, that are migrating from GTK2 to GTK3, is a good reason to
migrate to a window manager without a desktop environment. Actually
making a config file a desktop environment wants to access
immutable, could cause issue and might not help at all, since the
relevant file anyway could be in a temporarily cache. Does Xfce on
FreeBSD and/or Linux already suffer from dconf(/gsettings)/dbus and Co.
issues? I decided to migrate to openbox, when Xfce didn't suffer from
those culprits(/crap).
