Debian Configuration :: How To Forcibly Disable Laptop Close From Suspending

Mar 31, 2016

I'm using xfce, and the power manager settings, to only lock the screen when close, are not honored. The laptop suspends, no matter what, when closed. Is there a way to forcibily only allow xfce power manager to handle the close lid behavior?

Software :: Manually And Forcibly Remove LVM Configuration?

Feb 3, 2011

Unbeknownst to me the LVM volume (on LUN) that I removed from my server was in use by another system. So instead of vgexporting the volume group on one of the servers and then lv,vg,pv-removing it on the other I dismantled the LVM devices my servers (as belwo).

0. unmount the filesystem
1. Remove logical volume (lvremove <vg>/<lv>)
2. Remove volume group (vgremove <vg>)

Debian Hardware :: Disabling Laptop Lid-close Action

Dec 17, 2011

Dell Latitude C610 laptop with Debian Squeeze.I am using the computer as a print and file server, accessing it with ssh, so I don't need the display (which is busted anyway). I want to close the lid without having the computer suspend. Could not find a way to make it happen with gnome-power-preferences or the BIOS settings. There is a script, /etc/acpi/, that runs when the laptop lid switch changes. Part of the script is shown here:

Code: Select allgrep -q closed /proc/acpi/button/lid/*/state # this is a file of 1 line like "state:   open" or presumably "state:   closed"
 if [ $? = 0 ]                               # The brackets evaluate to True when the lid is closed.
    if [ x$LID_SLEEP = xtrue ]; then
        [ -x /etc/acpi/ ] && /etc/acpi/ # i.e., if this file exists, then run it.
... there's more ...
The stuff that gets executed after the if [ #$ = 0 ] is the stuff that suspends the computer. So I just replaced the brackets with something that is certain to be false, so it will never happen:

Code: Select allif [ 1 = 2 ]
I admit this is FAR from an elegant solution, but it seems to work and it doesn't fubar the system.

Ubuntu :: Suspending Laptop From The Command Line As A Normal User

Jan 20, 2010

I would like to be able to suspend to disk or Ram from the command line. I can do it with the package 'hibernate' which works well, but it needs to be run as root:


Do you know if there is any way that I can make this script run by normal users?

I am using a minimal version of 9.04 with openbox.

Debian Configuration :: Avoid Suspend Of Lid Close Without Login

Jul 20, 2015

So I have this laptop with a busted battery, I'm trying to get it into some kind of headless server, media topbox hybrid.

First thing I want to do is being able to leave it shut (powered on) in the corner without having to interact with it directly.

I've setup ssh and vnc so to login remotely and do task, transfer files and etc.

However there is a little issue with the laptop lid down upon turning it on, it immediately goes into suspend when getting to the display manager, which is 'lightdm'.

I suppose this is the default setting for Xorg and as such my custom configs for KDE only kick in after I login.

Question is: I never seen configuration for default power management stuff being done in Xorg, is there some way to disable automatic suspension on lid down?

Another question is: After the KDE kicks in does it always replace power options? I have setup a xorg.conf file specifying dpms options but these don't seem to remain.

Debian Configuration :: Software Suspend Working But Not When Lid Close

Nov 2, 2015

System is a Dell E7440, with Jessie, I recently upgraded to kernel 4.2.5 due to issues with wireless that are supposed to be fixed. (The same issue exists with jessie stock kernel 3.16 and BPO tough)

When I close the lid it often does not work and I get this in dmesg

Code: Select all[  567.104335] pci_bus 0000:01: Allocating resources
[  567.104349] pci_bus 0000:02: Allocating resources
[  567.104415] pci_bus 0000:03: Allocating resources
[  567.104428] i915 0000:00:02.0: BAR 6: [??? 0x00000000 flags 0x2] has bogus alignment
[  567.105515] i915 0000:00:02.0: BAR 6: [??? 0x00000000 flags 0x2] has bogus alignment
[  567.105540] i915 0000:00:02.0: BAR 6: [??? 0x00000000 flags 0x2] has bogus alignment
[  567.105585] i915 0000:00:02.0: BAR 6: [??? 0x00000000 flags 0x2] has bogus alignment

[Code] ....

I suppose the i915 stuff is something I can ignore, However

Code: Select all[  570.768020] acpi device:40: Cannot transition to power state D3hot for parent in (unknown)

seems to be the issue.. I don't even know what device:40 is.

in ls -l it shows as

Code: Select all  lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 Nov  2 12:28 device:40 -> ../../../devices/LNXSYSTM:00/LNXSYBUS:00/PNP0A08:00/INT33C6:00/device:40


Code: Select all# cat /sys/bus/acpi/devices/device:40/path

The awkward thing is tough, software suspend by running "systemctl suspend" works perfectly and always.

Code: Select all [  872.054627] PM: Syncing filesystems ... done.
[  872.091506] PM: Preparing system for sleep (mem)
[  872.092045] Freezing user space processes ... (elapsed 0.001 seconds) done.
[  872.093377] Freezing remaining freezable tasks ... (elapsed 0.001 seconds) done.
[  872.094563] PM: Suspending system (mem)
[  872.094595] Suspending console(s) (use no_console_suspend to debug)

[Code] ....

So despite the mysterious issue with acpi device 40, how is real lid close different from "systemctl suspend"? And can I simply workaround the issue by making such a suspend when the lid closes?

Debian Configuration :: Disable Boot Services

Jan 31, 2010

I'm running debian unstable and since there was the switch to dependency based boot I can no longer control my boot services.I used to suppress the services that I use rarely during boot with: sudo update-rc.d -f myservice remove This arranged the links in /etc/rc?.d and everything worked.

Now this command only says: update-rc.d: using dependency based boot sequencing.This seems to work until I upgrade the service to a new version and it is enabled again.Do you have any idea of how to disable boot services permanently with the new system?

Debian Configuration :: Disable Wireless At Startup?

Dec 22, 2010

I've been using Debian since the early days of Lenny being testing as OS on the same Computer. Its a Acer Aspire Notebook with switches for wireless and bluetooth. While booting Lenny my wireless and bluetooth stayed off as long as I didn't switch them on. But since squeeze they get activated ( you can see it by looking at the LED's ) the moment after the grub screen. I now do have to turn bluetooth and wireless off by hand everytime which is quite annoying since I mostly use eth0.

how to disable bluetooth and wireless per default in a way I can simply turn them back on by using the switch?

I also tried setterm -blength 0, xset -b in startup scripts. They disable terminal-beeps, but not the halt or the gdm login beep. I tried wasting around with the gconftool, but nothing happened. It is an annoying sound. If you use, init 0 to shut down, no beep comes up.

Debian Configuration :: Can't Ssh Into Laptop

Feb 16, 2010

Until a while ago, I had to problems sshing into my laptop, whose static IP is I scp'ed a few files from it to my desktop, whose static IP is Then, suddenly, I started getting a "destination host unreachable" error. I also get the same error when I try to ping the laptop. I verified that the ssh daemon was running on the laptop, and even rebooted, but I am still getting the error.

I didn't install any upgrades or edit any configuration files on the laptop between the time that ssh was working and when it stopped working.

Otherwise, networking works on the laptop. In fact, I am writing this post from it. It is as if my laptop suddenly decided to block incoming traffic.
