Ubuntu Installation :: It Shuts Down But PC Doesn't Power Down?

Apr 10, 2010

I've only recently switched to Ubuntu and overall I'm loving it. When i first installed it shut down perfectly from the GUI. After updating from the Update Manager, I've had problems. Now it shuts down but my PC doesn't power down.

I can manually make it shut and power down from the terminal with the command:

sudo shutdown -h -P now


sudo poweroff

The fact that it works from the Terminal but not from the GUI suggests there might be a coding problem with the GUI but discovering and fixing that is way beyond my capabilties.

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?

Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 PXE Shuts Down Ethernet On Hotplug

May 1, 2010

Trying to install Natty 11.04 via PXE. The ethernet is a Realtek RTL8168d/8111d gigabit. It DHCPs and configures just fine. Then it downloads what it needs for partitioning and does that. After partitioning, it runs net/hw-detect.hotplug which discovers the interface as new, then strips it of any configuration so it can not proceed further. Is there any way to disable this secondary hotplug detection of the ethernet interface?

Ubuntu Installation :: Monitor Shuts Off After Boot Up And Login

Dec 28, 2010

About two months ago my Ubuntu desktop computer (running Ubuntu 10.04) started giving me trouble. The monitor would occasionally shut off after booting up and logging in and using it for a few minutes. Then this started happening every single time I booted up the machine, making it effectively useless. I decided to try a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.10, and, luckily for whatever reason I was able to get the monitor to *not* shut off long enough to get this new installation to actually install. But now, after installing 10.10 the computer is doing the same thing, shutting the monitor off after boot up and/or login. Sometimes I can get to the login screen, sometimes I can even actually log in, but even after I log in, the monitor shuts off after a few minutes. I can access the BIOS just fine, of course, and I can get to the GRUB menu just fine by pressing ESC on boot up, but I cannot even get the root access on recovery mode to work for more than a few seconds before the monitor just shuts off - usually it shuts off right before I can even arrow down to select root access from the menu when I boot to recovery mode. In terms of hardware, I tried installing a new power supply, but that hasn't worked.

I also tried changing the GRUB command for the boot, where you go to the GRUB editor and add nomodeset, i915.modeset=1, i915.modeset=0 or xforcevesa after splash quiet, but that also doesn't work. The video/graphics card is just the built-in Intel video (PCI-E or something like that, part of the motherboard basically). It's an MSI motherbaord from a couple of years ago, American Megatrends, but the BIOS appears up-to-date. Anyway, I've tried everything and I am just about to give up. Ubuntu had been working fine for me for a couple of years on this machine, with no hardware changes, right up until that first week of November, 2010. Could there have been some automatic software update that ruined my machine? The OS is Ubuntu 10.10, and the Linux kernel is 2.6.35-22-generic. Also, if it matters, this same machine has had that hda-spurious response warning thing that appears on boot sometimes because of the Intel built-in audio configuration. That's been happening since a few versions of Ubuntu ago, so I don't know if it is related.

Ubuntu Installation :: Monitor Shuts Off When Booting From LiveCD

I have a NVIDIA Geforce 6150 LE video card and it is on the motherboard. I vaguely remember something on some site about nvidia cards, but can't remember what. It gets to the part where it says something like "Boot Ubuntu from the CD." I hit enter and it shuts my monitor off.

Ubuntu :: Screen Doesn't Go Into Low-power Mode / What To Do?

Jan 26, 2011

I'm on 10.10 64 bit. I have my power management settings configured so that on AC power, after 0:30 the screen is supposed to go to sleep.

But the problem is that it never goes to sleep. The screen saver comes on after 10 minutes, as scheduled, but when I come back even after a long period of time, the screen hasn't gone to sleep (it hasn't gone into low-power mode).

Please let me know what specific config information I should provide to help debug this and I'll post it here.

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 worked.at 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 Installation :: Notebook Monitor Shuts Of After Installing?

Mar 9, 2011

The machine I'm running is a Sony Vaio VPCCW290X notebookIntel Core i5 processorNvidia GeForce 310M video cardI am planning on making Debian my main OS but I am experimenting with installing it on a usb drive first. I am new to linux so this has been a learning experience so far. I finally got the grub installed correctly for the external hard drive to boot up into Debian. I installed the minimal network install so I should just be going to a console prompt. After booting it it goes for a short time and then the screen shuts off, not just black. I tried ctrl-alt-f1/f2 which didn't do anything. I am able to reboot by ctrl-alt-del though. If I try to boot into the second option it goes further before shutting off. Using a live cd it does the same thing unless I choose the fail-safe option. When I choose that it boots up correctly. If I hook up an external monitor it will switch over to it when the screen shuts off, so I know it's not the video card

OpenSUSE :: 7zip Doesn't Use The Full Power Of The Cpu?

Oct 24, 2010

i'm curently compressing a big 100GB file with 7zip on a system with an intel 2,66Ghz quadcore processor. Allthough 7zip uses 4 cores to compress the file, it still uses only about 40% of the cpu performance. The cpu isn't doing anything else, nothing heavy anyway.

I started compressing 8 hours ago and the compression is currently 47% done. Reading and writing the files isn't very fast so my harddrive isn't slowing the process down.

So what's the holdup? There is still 53% of work to be done. Is it for some reason impossible to do this faster?

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.

Fedora :: Power Management Doesn't Turn Off Monitor

Jun 15, 2009

I just upgraded from FC10 to FC11 (32-bit) on an old Dell laptop. I set my power management settings (in Gnome) to turn the monitor off after some idle period but always leave the computer running and the hard drives powered. I also set my screen saver to a blank screen. I noticed that the screen saver does come on (turning the screen black), but the monitor back lighting never goes off. I tried different idle times for the power management settings (I usually set it to 1 min, but some other posts implied that 11 mins might work). I should also mention that this is after I've logged into a user account, not sitting at the login screen.

I didn't have this problem in FC10 (the monitor would actually turn off) so I figured it was a bug in FC11, but I can't seem to find a thread addressing this issue. I've found some what similar threads, but none mentioning this particular problem.

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.

Ubuntu Networking :: Alfa AWUS036H Adjust Power - Unknown Transmit Power Information

Jun 21, 2010

Hardware :: Power Monitoring - Power Quality - Voltage Changes And Outages

I'm looking for any power monitoring devices for Linux to allow monitoring power quality, voltage changes, and outages. This would be for North American three phase power system. I want to have this data fed live to my own program. It should be something much better than just jury-rigging a circuit to fee the power waveform into 2 or 3 audio cards.

Ubuntu :: Power Profile/power Management App?

May 28, 2010

On the last release, I had this app installed where I could pick my power profile. I could use power conservatively, and performance would suffer a bit, but longer batt life,or I could have it automatically detect, or I could have the apps use all the power they want and then some. I'm looking to reinstall that app. What was the name of it?I can't remember, and so far, can't find.

Oct 30, 2010

I had unplugged my PC last night as sometimes there's storms at night this morning I plugged in PC and the power light is blinking and the PC wont come on at all tried different power cord, same result

PC is a AMD athlon64 3300+ 2.4ghz SiS graphics

If it is the power supply, how do I find new one as I've never had to replace anything on it or any other PC?

Also, I really need access to the hard drive but it's a weird hard drive and was wondering if I could put that hard drive in my K7 PC, which already has 2 drives in it can a pc have 3 drives? do I have to add/have another ribbon cable for 3rd drive?

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub2 Doesn't See Windows 7 - Doesn't Appear In Boot Menu

Jun 10, 2010

i wiped my entire hard drive that had xp as its only OS. I freshly installed a Windows 7 ultimate and everything went perfectly. I then decided to install 10.4. I split the partitions correctly (i had experience doing this already with my laptop, which has xp/10.4). Ubuntu 10.4 install went flawlessly, except for one thing. Now when i boot up the pc, it goes straight into 10.4. I have tried holding shift during the start up to force the boot menu, and it just shows the Ubuntu 10.4 OS as choices. Any clue what i could do to make Win7 appear in the boot menu?

Ubuntu Installation :: Power Goes Down After Sometime

Apr 24, 2010

I installed Ubuntu 9.10 in my friends pc. However, after about half or nearly one hour, the box goes out of power and the monitor hangs with the same screen just before the power down. And we have to restart by first powering down the UPS. It is a DUAL BOOT system with WINDOWS 7 and it never happens in there. What is annoying me now is that my friend says, "This is the problem of Ubuntu". I then installed Opensuse 11.2 but again the same thing happens with linux and not WIndows 7. Here are the specs of his system:

Ubuntu Installation :: Using The Power PC Port To PS3 Of 9.10?

Feb 13, 2010

For various reasons I have decided that it would be helpful to use my PS3 as a backup computer for homework and basic word processing. I looked up some instructions on installing Ubuntu on the PS3 and followed them exactly. I'm using the PS3 port, I put it on a clean disk, I already partitioned and installed the OS (by that I mean, I used the install other OS function on the XMB) When I run the OS it brings me to the live CD with the penguins, but after I hit enter, the screen just goes black. Occasionally it has given me the initramfs screen, but only sometimes.

I also noticed, on the first screen, before I hit enter there is a "ps3av_send_cmd_pkt" error. I have looked all over google for a fix, but have found little help. I am using the Power PC port to PS3 of 9.10.

Ubuntu :: Always Shuts It Down By Itself?

Jan 20, 2010

I've installed VMware server 2.x on my windows XP SP2 and installed Ubuntu 9.10 on the VMWare. I have noticed several times that the ubuntu machines shuts it down (not sure the time pattern but it could be that it shuts down after a certain minutes idle). As a result of that, I always have to restart it.

I checked the event log viewer, it looks like there's always a segfault just before it shuts down. I've pasted the last few lines of event log below.

I have tried: blacklist pcspkr in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf (actually was already done in 9.10) in gconf-editor gone to apps gnome-power manager, unchecked low power notification

gone to sound preferences muted alert volume. If this was a desktop i would just physically disable the internal speaker, but i don't want to open up my laptop do to possible difficulty of reassembly.

Ubuntu Installation :: Instant Power Off Before Booting

Jun 27, 2010

I have just installed Ubuntu in a Windows Vista system. The installation seemingly went fine. After installation, system restarted to boot menu (grub?) where I selected Vista. Vista started fine. I restarted the pc from the Vista login screen. Now the problems started. At grub, I chose Ubuntu. It began to start up, made it through the Ubuntu logo with the dots, some splash screen or wallpaper came up and *bam* the computer powered off. Next I Wanted to boot Vista again. Grub came up for a half-second before power-off.

I tried to boot from the CD again to see about repairing grub or just reinstalling. The installer ran for a second before power-off. Next, tried BIOS boot manager to boot from the HDD again. Powered-off at the BIOS boot manager screen before I could choose where to boot from. Twice in a row. Tried to boot into BIOS to check settings for anything odd. Powered-off within 1 second after I got into the BIOS. Finally, I would hit the power button and it would turn on and then power-off instantly.

I unpulgged my Logitech VX Revolution mouse and the charger (it's fully charged and holding fine). I thought maybe the computer was hot (feels normal though), so I waited one minute. After that, I was able to boot from Grub to Windows fine. I restarted the pc from the windows login screen to try Ubuntu again. Got into grub and just repeated the same process from before with the same results. Nothing works. I waited one minute again, and I was able to boot into Vista fine. I am posting this from Vista with everything connected and working fine.

I downloaded the 32bit desktop version from the "enhanced download page." I burned the iso with the Toshiba DiscCreator software that came with the computer. I've used DiscCreator many times before with great success. Ubuntu was burned to a normal 80min/700mb Maxell CD-R. I'm afraid to reboot from Vista now and find that one of these times, I won't be able to get back in. I installed Ubuntu into an empty 9.77gb partition and formatted it as ext3. Used an empty 1.46gb partition as swap.

Here's my setup:

Model Name: A215-S5837
Part Number: PSAEGU-03801J
UPC: 883974072095 .....
