Debian Multimedia :: Xfce4-power-manager Doesn't React To Power Button / Fix It?

Jun 4, 2010

I use Squeeze with Xfce. My problem is that recently (after the xfce updates) the xfce power manager doesnt react to the power button - it is set to suspend. I dont have gnome-power manager or anything like it running.
If i reboot the computer, the power button will work but if i suspend and resume, it doesnt work again.
The computer is built on an Asus M3N78-VM mobo (2GB RAM/Athlon3200+ single core).

acpi_listen detects the button press.

Any thoughts?

Debian Multimedia :: Xfce4 Power Manager Using Too Much RAM After Jessie Upgrade

May 11, 2015

I recently upgrade from wheezy to jessie. I had a problem with the icons and solved it. Now when i place the xfce4-power-manager-plugin on the panel, the plugin is using more RAM than it needs. Currently its using 960 MiB. Yesterday it used about 3 GiB of RAM. It doesn't happen if the plugin is removed from panel.

Command in task manager:
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/xfce4/panel/wrapper /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/xfce4/panel/plugins/ 20 20972767 power-manager-plugin Power Manager Plugin Display the battery levels of your device and control the brightness of your display.

Slackware :: Xfce4-power-manager-1.0.1 And No Battery Options

Oct 17, 2010

I noticed that there is a 1.0.1 version of xfce4-power-manager, so I tried it out last night. Note: It requires libxfce4ui >= 4.7. I compiled it using the same SlackBuild script as the one in Slackware 13.1. It compiled and installed just fine. However, when I logged out of XFCE and logged back in, I could only set a few options, and battery options were completely non-existant.

I double-checked, and my user account in in the power group. Has anyone else had a similar problem? In the meantime, I've downgraded back to the 0.8.5 version that Slackware ships with.

Slackware :: Missing Xfce4-power-manager Icons In Xfce 4.8

Jun 25, 2011

I'm using Slackware64 13.37 with Robby's Xfce 4.8 build on a laptop with two batteries. I've noticed that when the charge for one battery is depleted, the empty battery icon for the xfce4-power-manager panel applet is displayed as an "image missing" icon (see the attachments for screenshots of how this progresses).

Is this just down to a missing image, or is it more subtle than that? Has anyone else had the same problem, and if so how did you fix it? So far I've tried clearing the GTK+ icon cache and reinstalling the hicolor icon theme package as suggested in other threads in this forum, but nothing changed.

Ubuntu :: 10.10 Physical Power Button Doesn't Work?

Oct 19, 2010

I previously had Ubuntu server 9.04, 9.10 and 10.04. I use it as a headless server and the power button had always first, I updated from 10.04 to 10.10 and everything was working great but I decided to reinstall the os on a new HDD. then when I want to shutdown the server, I need to login with ssh and shutdown it with "halt -p", the power button doesn't do anything. I connected a monitor to the server to see what's happen on the screen but nothing... no message. nothing in the error log.I tried to add apm force_off=1 in the /etc/modules but still not working.

Debian Multimedia :: Gnome-power-manager Delay In Notifying?

Jun 3, 2010

I've noticed g-p-m refreshes information extremely delayed. Sometimes it takes many many minutes before it notifies me that I'm running on battery. how I can change this refresh rate? I've drained the batteries once recently believing the icon that said 89% less than a minute before the batteries were completely discharged (my battery lasts for about 15-20 minutes).

Debian Hardware :: Keyboard Multimedia Keys Doesn't Respond After Power Failure

Jul 23, 2014

Yesterday something has happened with power supply, so 2 of 3 PCs has shut down. And now my debian pc doesn't respond to multimedia (volume to be precise) keys, leds also doesn't work. Other keys are fine. Tried xev, but it doesn't respond to multimedia keys either. I have dual boot with Win7 on this machine, and it works fine with multimedia keys.

I believe this is a clue:

Debian :: Power Button On Keyboard Not Functioning

Jun 27, 2015

I recently upgraded to Jessie and am using the LXDE desktop. I like using the keyboard power button to shutdown the system but it does not work. I looked at /etc/acpi and everything appears okay to my untrained eyes, but there is obviously something not working correctly. Do I need to edit some config file or install some code in order to use the power button for shutdown ? When I look at Services Settings I see that acpid power management is selected.

Debian Hardware :: How To Get Power Button Working On X1Carbon

Jun 3, 2015

I have a new Thinkpad X1 Carbon (3rd) and i am very pleased with this machine so far.

Linux support is very good and i only have a few issues remaining.

I am running Debian Jessie and tried this with 2 kernels:

linux-4.0.4 (vanilla)

Main Problem at the time is really cannot get the power button to work.

thinkpad_acpi module is loaded.

I am not very familiar what possibilities are available to catch input devices. Some search in the internet brought me to the following commands. I tried evtest with no result

Code: Select allroot@x1carbon:~# evtest /dev/input/event3
Input driver version is 1.0.1
Input device ID: bus 0x19 vendor 0x0 product 0x1 version 0x0
Input device name: "Power Button"
Supported events:
  Event type 0 (EV_SYN)
  Event type 1 (EV_KEY)
    Event code 116 (KEY_POWER)
Testing ... (interrupt to exit)

I tried acpi_listen also with no result

What else could i try? All other keys like lid event and all fn keys work flawlessly.

Just learned that the event needs about 1 second of pressing time to trigger

Debian Hardware :: ACPI Power Button Config Ignored

Sep 28, 2015

I have an Asus EEE Box EB1012 running Debian Jessie (headless with no GUI installed).

I'm trying to get the power button on the front of the machine to put the computer in suspend.

If I run pm-suspend from the command line, it suspends correctly and also recovers correctly by pressing the hardware power button.

Originally, pressing the power button (while running) would shut the computer down.

The acpi power button event script was set to run the command "/sbin/shutdown -h -P now".

I changed it to "/usr/sbin/pm-suspend", and restarted the acpi service/rebooted the computer (I tried both), but the power button still cause the computer to shut down.

I also tried setting no action (empty string) for the power button event, but still the power button caused shutdown.

Is the acpi system getting bypassed somehow? Is there another system to configure instead?

Ubuntu :: Power Manager Doesn't Show Remaining Battery Hours

Dec 10, 2010

I've had this problem for a while and have eagerly awaited a fix, but have not received one. But the problem is when I'm either charging or on battery and I would click on the power manager the menu that pops up shows me the percentage of life remaining but does not give me any indication of how long I have until my battery is dead/fully charged.If I were to open up the Power Statistics window there is no information time to full or time to empty. Both are just empty.

Debian :: Can't Disable Power Manager In Some Cases

Oct 25, 2010

I am having a weird problem where if I don't touch the mouse or keyboard after logging on, the power manager settings are being ignored. I disabled turning off the display and screen saver from the Gnome utilities, but after about 20 minutes my screen blanks and my wireless network connection gets disconnected. This is on an HTPC, so I'm usually not near the mouse or keyboard, and unfortunately button presses from the remote control don't count. Media players like MPlayer will prevent the screen from blanking, but if I'm listening to music (where the music is served over the network from another computer), this means that the screen will go blank and the music playback will freeze as the network connection is lost. If I touch the keyboard just after booting it doesn't blank the screen or disconnect my wireless, but when I forget it's very disruptive.

I am running Debian Testing (Squeeze) with a Gnome desktop environment. I'm using gdm3 to log in, but I have it set up to automatically log me on. (I use gdm on my desktop, also with Squeeze, with it configured to show login screen instead of automatically logging me on and it still displays that behavior) I have attempted the following to resolve this issue to no avail:

Disable DPMS for my screen and monitor in /etc/X11/Xorg.conf Set all the timeouts for blanking, power down, etc. to 0 in /etc/X11/Xorg.conf Flat out disabling the DPMS extension. (so it's still blanking, even if it's not actually turning on power saving mode) Putting "xset s off" in ~/.xinitrc Disabling powersave with setterm in ~/.xinitrc
Removing gnome-screensaver and gnome-power-manager from the startup items.

Edit: Actually, the wireless issue seems to not be related. It disconnected again, and after some searching with the error message I saw in dmesg, it looks like others have been having the same issue. It seems to have been coincidental that it was acting up when I was testing the screen blanking issue, and hasn't given me as much trouble lately, so it seemed like it was correlated.

Debian :: Gnome-power-manager Shutdown Problem In Lenny

Aug 8, 2010

I have upgraded my netbook system to lenny. I got almost every thing working right except gnome-power-manager shutdown event. It shows critical battery level (red color) on its applet on the panel but it does not do the normal safe shutdown action. Instead, it just do a sudden shutdown of the system which causes the lose of some data. Is there any way to solve this issue using lenny's current version (2.22.1-4)?My netbook is AcerOne.

Debian Configuration :: Gnome-power-manager Prevents Suspend Key From Working

Nov 19, 2010

I decided to upgrade my Asus Eee 900 from Lenny to Squeeze, to fix some issues that I was having. I did a fresh install using the beta1 netinstall cd image, and now my system is mostly working as I'd like it. Overall it seems quite good, and it even boots much faster than it did with Lenny.

I've encountered a problem, though. The suspend key doesn't work. I installed the package 'hibernate', and now the system can suspend via a command (which seems to work properly, although I haven't tested it extensively). I've noticed that the squeeze system doesn't have a command that my other Lenny systems do, 's2ram'. And I've noticed also that a package, uswsusp, which seems to be related to this kind of thing, can't be installed because it's not in the repositories: Package uswsusp is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source E: Package 'uswsusp' has no installation candidate

Debian Configuration :: Gnome Power Manager Display Setting Not Respected?

May 19, 2011

Despite having the Gnome Power Manager set to put the display to seep after 30 minutes, it always happens after 5 minutes. The display will go blank but still lit, and then it powers off after the 30 minutes. Surely, if I set it to 30 minutes, the display should power off then, and not just blank after 5? I have no screensaver packages installed so it's nothing to do with that.

Fedora :: Remap The Power Button?

Oct 20, 2009

I've got a F10 machine set up as a media center (with mythtv...mythdora to be precise) and I love that it's based on fedora since I'm most familiar with it..I would like to map the power button press to a command "pkill X" since sometimes the frontend freezes and running this command kills X (I'm running ratpoison for the speed and just gets the job done and doesn't get in the way).Any help in mapping a single button press to "pkill X" would be greatly appreciated. I also need some help adding this command to the sudo list so the regular "mythtv" user will be able to run password can be entered since the machine has no keyboard. Currently I log in via ssh to get this done but it would be nice to not have to boot up a laptop just to do this.

Ubuntu :: Power Button Does Not Shut Down?

Jun 25, 2010

We are planning the migration fro Karmic to Lucid for our systems, these systems are custom Ubuntu installations, we create them using debootstrap and then running a script that installs desired packages, mainly X server and (optionally) fluxbox.

I've set up a hard drive with our current scripts (the only modifications were the change of lucid instead of karmic for update servers and removing usplash from our scripts), but I've found that pushing the power button would not shut down the system (we have no GDM or similar), the system does not respond to this event as used to do under Karmic.

Do you know where I can check/enable the system to shutdown when pushing the power button?

Server :: Use Power Off Button In Terminal?

Mar 25, 2011

I built this small server for a coworker that by nature of its purpose will get turned off and on often. I want it setup so that he can just press the power button to have it power off normally. Normally I can set that up in Gnome, but in this case I don't want to install a GUI. Is there software that can tie the button and the the poweroff/shutdown cmd together without needing a desktop environment

Ubuntu :: Locked Screen And Power Button?

In Ubuntu 10.04: if the screen has been locked (automatically by the screensaver or user-activated using the top-right menu) pressing the power button doesn't initiate shutdown. Is this a bug or is it a configurable option?I would expect to either get the usual 60 second shutdown delay or a graceful shutdown right away.

Ubuntu :: Power Button Not Working In Lubuntu?

Sep 25, 2010

Recently i've switched from ubuntu 8.04 to Lubuntu 10.04, since that time the powerbutton does not work anymore.I've tried to find out how powermanagement is implemented in ubuntu to be able to debug this problem. But most documentation about this topic seems dated.I've already tried a few thing, most important stuff I did is:

- tested the scripts in /etc/acpi/ and added a line to write something to a textfile when its called. But this file is not called when pressing the powerbutton.

- checked bios settings, seems alright (and these settings worked on 8.04 to).

Ubuntu :: Power Button Missing In Lucid?

Jan 11, 2011

I've installed lucid on two computers now and have been using or a few months.Overall, it's pretty good and everything just works. However, every now and then (seemingly random), the power button in the indicator appletsion panel widget randomly disappears, so I'm unable to shut down my computer without re-adding the widget, or using the command line to shutdown the computer. Now this is acceptable for me, an advanced user. However, this is not acceptable for my parents and family, who also use ubuntu computers. Today, my mother called me to ask why she couldn't turn off her computer. I was dumbfounded, and had to walk her through turning it off "by hand."

Now this is not me accidentally removing the indicator applet session panel item. No, I can still see the user name bubble with availability information and I can still switch users. It's just that the power button is completely missing (sometimes the place where it used to be is occupied by a corrupt graphic). Additionally, if I login later, the power button magically returns without me having to do anything with regards to the panel. This is disappointing indeed.

Honestly, this is why ubuntu and linux in general still have the reputation they do of being non-user-friendly. At least in windows or mac, when I get fed-up I can turn it off. But not so in ubuntu. No ubuntu tortures me continuously and I marvel that such a simple thing has escaped the minds of such advanced programmers. I wish Canonical would focus on letting us TURN OFF the computer instead of adding crazy features that I'm not going to use. I mean how can a real operating system fail at such a simple task

Ubuntu :: Use PC's Power Button While Screen Is Locked

Jan 18, 2011

I am building a small Ubuntu box made for our clients to listen to an audio stream. At startup, I have scripts that start the audio stream, then locks the screen so clients can't change any settings. It works flawlessly.

However, if a client has to shut down the box, they can't. Note this is a headless unit, no monitor, keyboard, or mouse. It will ONLY be used to play streaming audio. I need for the client to be able to safely shutdown the unit by pressing the power button. But, when the power button is pressed, ubuntu asks for the user password. Is there a way to just make the system shutdown without entering a password?
