Debian Configuration :: Where Hard-disk Power Management Can Be Found In Squeeze

Feb 19, 2010

I am trying to figure out where the harddisk power management can be found in Squeeze. Before it was in the scripts under /etc/acpi, but in Squeeze it's not. I'd like to be able to change the hdparm -B value from 128 to 200 when using battery.

I'm running Squeeze with Gnome & GDM3. After 1 h my laptop automatically suspends while in the login screen (GDM3; so no user login). I want to prevent that, since this machine also has a server role. how this can be prevented?

Debian Multimedia :: Dual Screen / XFCE - Only One Turns Off (power Management)

Feb 7, 2016

On a fresh install of Debian 8 with XFCE (with a NVIDIA GeForce 210 according to lspci, and a P7P55D Asus mainboard), I just added a second monitor. This second monitor does not switches off even though the first one does due to the Screensaver Preferences → Advanced → Off After 3 minutes.

The new screen is a HP Pavilion 25xw plugged in using a HDMI cord.

The old screen is a Philips 190S plugged in using a VGA cord.

The new screen (HP on HDMI) only goes blank when the old one (Philips VGA) turns off.

Two tests:

- on the same machine, I also have Windows XP: both screens turns off at the same time with the power management.
- I tried on Debian: Code: Select allsleep 5 && xrandr --output  HDMI-1 –off

It turns off the second monitor, so I know that it is possible to turn it off from my Debian.

How to set up the system so that both monitors power off when the machine is not used?

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 Install Black Screen After One Minute?

Jul 3, 2010

I am installing 10.04 on a HP pavilion. I have downloaded the ubuntu-10.04-desktop-i386.iso (live CD). When I try to boot or install from it, the screen shows the "ubuntu" with the red dots for a minute and then a black screen with no action from the hard drive or the CD drive. I think it should be asking what language I want but presing enter does nothing.I have been using Ubuntu since 2006 and after yesterday's repartition I installed 6.06 from a live CD so I know I can install from a CD.

Ubuntu :: Power Management Screen Not Turning Off?

May 12, 2010

I have an issue where the screen on my laptop will not shut off with the power management tool. The Default Power Manager does not have an option for this.My screen will go blank after a set amount of time, but the lcd-backlight will remain on. I would want the power manager to shut the screen off completely (including turning off the lcd backlight) without shutting down the computer it-self. So the computer can continue to do what I left it to do in the case I forget to close the lid. With the screen shut off completely, will preserve the life of the back light and reduce power consumption.

Is there a better power manager app that will allow me to do this a tweak to the existing default power manager that will allow the functionality I am seeking? laptop was perfectly able to do this under a win-xp environment, so I know the machine is physically capable of doing this. Note: My WinXP OS and Ubuntu OS are on seperate physical drives so there is no dual boot issues. So when I am using one there is no trace of the other present

OpenSUSE :: Disabling Screen Lock / Enable Display Power Management?

Sep 14, 2009

I am a brand new user coming from the MS environment. My impression of openSUSE is that it is like moving into a new house that is well built but the rooms are full of half-constructed self-assembly furniture and appliances without any specific instructions. Nor is it clear which does what and whether all are needed or not. There is a town hall down the road where fellow homeowners gather to discuss what each has managed to deduce about putting their own furniture together. The town hall has a sort of library where thousands of pieces of paper with instructions are stored in an ad-hoc filing system

My latest problem is that I have created a screensaver via the "Configure Desktop" application and set "Enable display power management" and set some timeouts.However, I seem to be asked for a password to unlock the screen when I come back to my computer. I have spent 2 hours trying to find the place where I can disable screen password locking but to no avail. I am perplexed and frustrated at how such an obvious function is so ****ed hard to configure. This is the impression I am getting of Linux in general - it is novice user-hostile and badly organised.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Low Level Power Management Screen Saver Removal

May 28, 2010

I run V11.1 on a minimalised install on a stick with TWM, no KDE at all but I cant get rid of the screen shutdown after about 20 minutes. Also I have several other boxes with v11.1 with KDE and still cant get rid of these screen shut downs.I dont believe this is coming from the bios in these machines. they are all Intel D945 MBs with some sort of Nvidea cards.

My app normal runs with no user mouse or input and is pocessor intensive.I would like to retain the power shutdown and reboot capability from comand line.I realise its not as simple as pulling symlinks of of the init levels in the new complicated distros, but I was suprised the non kde twm install still shuts down the screen.So I want a low level level fix that will remove anything kicked off by init that will derate the system performance or turn off the screen.

Red Hat :: Black Screen (power Saving) Is Not Coming Up On Login Screen?

Nov 24, 2008

I have a few machines set up and running Red Hat 4.1.2-42 in a computer lab. I also have a single test machine running the same version. The machines in the lab work flawlessly.However, when machines are on the login screen, they don't go into power saving mode. That is, after a certain amount of inactivity, the idle login screen should be replaced by a black power saving screen. But this does not happen. The monitor should go into standby (the little green light becomes orange, and the whole screen shuts down until you move your mouse again...you know the drill).I know this is supposed to be the case because this works on the test machine. It just doesn't work in the lab. I think it has something to do with gdm, but I can't for the life of me figure it out.

Debian :: Text Mode Power Management?

Mar 16, 2011

I recently converted a Toshiba Satellite A75 notebook with a broken screen into a minecraft server that me and my friends will be using at UAB. It's currently running the latest version of Debian in text-mode with a few shell scripts that backup files and update a webpage at specified times.

The server runs fantastic ( though it's currently on my home network so no one can join it unless they are on LAN ) but there is a minor problem. I took a look at the backups from last night and it seems the server shut down around 10:00 in the morning because the laptop went into sleep/hibernate mode or something like that. I'm not sure what's causing this exactly but I think it's some setting in gnome-power-manager, but I can't run it in text mode.

Debian :: Zenbook UX31E Power Management Update

Mar 5, 2016

I have recently upgraded the hardware of my zenbook from i5 to i7. Unfortunately the battery discharges very fast (30 min instead 3 h with i5) because the system turns all time at maximum speed (I guess).

Is there any power management update for Debian Jessie8.3 on i7 processors?

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.

Debian Configuration :: Unknown Root LV In Gnome-disk-utility ?

Jul 24, 2011

Gnome-disk-utility doesn't show filesystem type, mount point, filesystem label, size of my / filesystem.

I am running Debian Squeeze using lvm2. I have two HDDs and each has one primary partition, which are used as PVs. Having two VGs, each VG has it's own PV.

There are some LVs and all of them except the LV holding the swap space are formatted with XFS. Now gnome-disk-utility shows everything about my /home LV, another LV containing a whole Ubuntu installation, only the / LV (and Swap LV, but I don't know what it is supposed to show there) is/are missing nearly all information.

Otherwise the system is running perfectly well and the Debian / LV is shown normally in Ubuntu's disk-utlity, as well as all other LVs.

fdisk

Physical volume

Volume group

Volume group

lvdisplay

Logical volume

DebianCopy is a copy of my Debian installation (different fs label and UUID). DebianII (again different UUID and label) is a copy too, but there I tried out newer (testing) versions of udisks/lvm2/udev and right after the upgrade it showd everything as it should with the additional advantage of the newer udisks-version showing my VGs, but after a reboot it showed the same behaviour as before or even worse, because the information about other LVs was missing too.

In the end I even modified the fstab. Originally it contained the /dev/mapper/vgbay... entries and I replaced them with LABEL=... and finally with UUID=..., but it didn't make any difference either.

Debian Configuration :: Bad Bandwidth Management Behind SSH Tunnel

Mar 2, 2016

We have an Apache Subversion (http) server for hosting our codes, and, for the 3 next month, we are behind a DSL connection (max upload 100 kB/s).

When a remote co-worker try to download a new fresh copy of our projects on his computer directly over http, the transfer goes fine : with a bandwidth monitor (gnome-system-monitor or bwm-ng) we can see that the server is trying to send ~95kB/s and the connection remains usable for others task in parallel (just a bit slower, which is normal).

But : when the remote co-worker is connected through SSH to this server, and uses tunneling to communicate with Apache Subversion, the server is sending more than 200kB/s : the connection is not usable for other tasks during the transfer as with ~102kB/s actually transferred through the DSL Line, it's completely congested and more than fifty percents of the packets are lost.

I think that I understand why : TCP/IP auto-detects the max amount of successfully transmitted bytes per second, and try not send more than this maximum value.

When the Apache server is connected to the local instance of openssh-server through localhost, packets are transmitted successfully between them. Only after, openssh-server try to send it to the client (and should retry if it's not successfull) but during that time, Apache is already giving the next one... giving this saturation effect (Apache is not aware of the saturation, or at least, not enough)

Software :: Disk Caching Utility For Power Saving ?

Nov 28, 2010

I run Ubuntu Netbook 10.04 on my EeePC 1005HA. I'm going to get a SSD for it eventually, but I can't afford one right now so it's running from a 200GB hard disk I scavenged off a dead laptop.

I went in power management and set the option that says "spin down hard drives whenever possible", but this accomplished a whole lot of nothing - whenever the computer is on, the drive's spinning. I ran hdparm -y and the drive clicked off, and then promptly spun back up after a few seconds. Iotop shows occasional tiny bursts of activity from "jdb2/sda1-8", which I don't really know how to interpret, but I don't have anything weird installed so I'm assuming this is normal system operation.

Now, what I need is some sort of application, utility, command - anything - that forces the computer to keep all filesystem changes in RAM with the drive shut down; every five/ten minutes or so (this would hopefully be configurable) it spins up the drive, dumps the filesystem changes to it, and spins it down again.

I realize this presents data loss risks related to crashing and poweroffs when the cache hasn't been dumped to disk, but I'm willing to risk it as Linux never really crashes at all, and since it's a netbook power failures won't cause unexpected shutdowns.

Debian Configuration :: Increased Power Consumption On Kernels >= 2.6.38?

According to Phoronix [URL]... aspm&num=1 (which seems to only test Ubuntu kernels) the problems should affect all users of the affected kernels, including Debian's, but that article provides a fix.

OpenSUSE :: Power Management Is Incompetent

Mar 21, 2010

I have selected to power down the monitor after 30 minutes, and suspend the computer after an hour. It does not work. With Beagle not running (more below), the monitor powers down after 30 minutes as expected. But then later (probably after an hour?) it powers up again and stays that way. Not exactly what I envisioned.I have removed Beagle from the set of running processes. The process list ("ps ax") shows Beagle as a serious consumer of CPU time, far more than any other process. (At termination it was at 500:00; the next most hungry process was /usr/bin/Xorg at 10:00. Most barely get over 0:01.) It introduces these problems:

1. after some amount of system idle time (it is about 5 - 10 minutes) Beagle starts consuming vast wodges of CPU time. I have dual core AMD 5200; both CPUs run up to about 70% usage until I do anything, like move the mouse. Then the usage drops back to the usual 5 - 10%.
2. When Beagle is thrashing the CPUs, the power management monitor thinks the system is busy. And powers down nothing.

OpenSUSE :: Power Management Options For UPS?

Sep 29, 2010

I've attached a UPS to my server through USB. and sure enough up came a tab in Power Management Preferences for the UPS -- great.

There are power low options as follows:

"When UPS power is low"
"When UPS power is critically low"

The UPS sends a message to the computer when a threshold you set in the UPS is reached, in my case 25% of battery left.

The obvious guess is that this warning from the UPS is the "When UPS power is low" however, I don't know. It's just a guess.

Looking further at the data I can get from the UPS the battery data is as follows:

battery.charge: 100
battery.charge.low: 25
battery.charge.warning: 50
battery.runtime: 760

[Code]....

However, again, that's just a guess from what would make sense.

So my first question is, is there a way to know this information, and is there a place were these critical points are set, or are they all from the UPS. I'm guess there are some settings somewhere because not all UPSs are going to be able to supply this information. Some may only supply a battery level or some just a warning message so there must be some configuration for this somewhere.

My 2nd question is a probably a little harder to know the answer to. After getting this to work I wanted the added functionality of nut so I installed it and got it working and it uses the On UPS Power panel as far as I can tell.

Through all the nut documentation it talks about powering down on once the battery level reaches the critical point (I assume that is "When UPS power is critically low"). I don't see anywhere however where it mentions handling "When UPS power is low" so now the question comes up, will it have any effect at all with nut installed, i.e. what will happen?

Of course I can just "pull the plug" and start finding this stuff out but Linux is all about having the information and "knowing" (assuming all works as it should) I am asking to find out where this information would be -- and become smarter for it
