Debian Configuration :: Suspend Mode And Cron Jobs?

Jul 7, 2010

Just curious if this is possible. What I want to do is setup a rsync job to backup my laptop to my personal file server(same LAN), but I want it do do this at 3AM while I'm sleeping. However I always close my laptop lid when I'm done using it which puts the laptop into suspend mode since that's how I configured my power options in gnome. Since I don't want to leave my laptop powered up all the time, I was wondering if it is possible to have a cron job scheduled that will wake the laptop up(out of suspend mode) and run my script/backup job, all without opening the lid of the laptop, and then put it back into suspend mode when it's done. Is this possible, and is it as easy as scheduling a cron job or is there some other scripting/configuration/trickery that I need to do to accomplish this?

Also, my laptop's BIOS has the option to power on at a scheduled time if needed, but I'm not sure if that would work with it being suspended(hibernation is not an option since my entire HD is encrypted with LUKS and I would have to be present to enter the password to boot the system.).

Debian :: Laptop Freezes When Going Into Suspend

Sep 30, 2015

I'm running stock Debian 8.2 with GNOME DE on an Acer ES1-512 series laptop. Whenever I attempt to go into suspend, either by closing the laptop lid or holding ALT when clicking the power button in the top-left system menu on the desktop, my laptop briefly flashes the default GNOME lock screen, fades to black, and then hangs there. Usually, when my laptop would actually suspend, the power indicator light would change from blue to orange and slowly fade in and out. However, now it just sits on blue. There is no way to re-awaken the laptop from this state, and I have to force shutdown by holding the power button.

Running Code: Select allgrep -i error /var/log/messages gives me:

Code: Select allSep 28 17:59:57 debian gnome-session[1188]: [1504:1536:0928/] Received close command, resetting connection.

Debian :: Laptop Comes Out Of Suspend But Screen Stays Black?

Dec 14, 2010

I like to suspend my laptop when I close the lid. I have squeeze installed. When I open the laptop lid all lights indicated that it coming out of suspend but the monitor stays black. It is worse since I install the ati drivers for the card instead of the xorg. It did it with both but worse with nonfree drivers. I can get it to come out by ctrl alt f2 and the ctrl alt f7. However yesterday that did not work but that was the first time. My laptop is an acer 5251-1513 amd processor v120, and hd 4250 radeon

Debian Hardware :: Slow Resume From Suspend On Acer Laptop?

Jan 5, 2011

My Acer Aspire 7552 laptop is running Debian Testing (just the main repos, no contrib or non-free). For some reason, it takes over five minutes to resume from suspend, and an absurd period to come back from hibernate (well over half an hour). Has anyone encountered this problem before, or have any tips on how to fix it? For the time being, I'm completely powering off every time I close my laptop because it's faster that way.

Output of lspci in case it helps:

Debian :: Suspend On Console Without The X Server Running The Laptop Wakes Up To A Blank Screen?

Feb 26, 2011

I'm using a dell latitude d630 with an nvidia quadro 135M card. I'm able to suspend without any problems while running the X server. If I try to suspend on console without the X server running, the laptop wakes up to a blank screen. The screen remains blank and my only resort is to type sudo halt (with the screen off).I'm using the proprietary nvidia driver with the nvidia-kernel package on testing.

Fedora Installation :: Runs In Text Mode ?

Mar 4, 2009

It seems I had no say in the matter. The installer automatically did text mode and it starts up in text mode now. I'm very new to Fedora, though I had Ubuntu installed recently but removed it because Fedora seemed a little more interesting to me. I'm on an HP Pavilion dv2807nr laptop if that helps.

Ubuntu :: Runs In Low Graphics Mode For Just One Session

May 5, 2011

The above subject was one of the options I was given on the boot up of Ubuntu 11.04 (natty) after the message 'Your screen graphics card and input device could not be detected correctly'

I OK'd the message to run in low graphics mode.

The question is: What's causing this? I've had a look through previous posts with (apparently) the same problem, but the methods used were inconclusive, even though in some cases the problem was resolved.

Nvidia was mentioned - about deleting all references to it in Packet manager. Would this work? And if so, why?

This was one of the lines of an LSPCI command in terminal...

01:05.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon Mobility U1

How can I get the graphics to run properly?

General :: Ubuntu 10.10 Runs Only In Safe Mode Session

Mar 28, 2011

I tried to install Ubuntu in my P3 computer so i can play with it, everything works fine but not after i reboot it. Now i got the user and password window on the desktop and drop-down-list of sessions, language, keyboard, date & Time and Shutdown button at the bottom.

Drop-down-list session:
Recovery Console
Ubuntu Desktop Edition
Ubuntu Desktop Edition (Safe Mode)
User Defined Session

With these 4 options, the third one which is the safe mode is the only option I was able to get through. Others are just desktop without toolbar or anything, right click with folder option are working though. Recovery console is just the CLI window but I don't know anything about Linux commands.

Ubuntu :: Laptop Fan Runs Continuously?

Nov 18, 2010

I have an IBM ThinkPad T43 on which I run Ubuntu 10.10. Everything works fairly smoothly except that I notice my laptop fan runs continuously. When I turn on the machine it revs up until boot-up is complete, then it shuts off for a few minutes, and then it comes back on and never turns off until I'm through working.Is this strictly a hardware problem, or is there something about Linux that causes the computer to run hot and so causes the fan to work hard? Is there a setting that I could check to see if the fan is working properly? I don't use any exotic programs or run video intensive games, so there's no reason why the computer should run especially hot

Ubuntu Installation :: Laptop Runs So Hot Sometimes Gets Sluggish And Locks Up

Feb 19, 2011

Since support for 8.04 LTS will be ending soon, I decided to move up to 10.04 LTS. On my old Thinkpad A20m laptop, the install went well, and everything seemed to work except the middle trackpoint button. Fixed that easily by editing a conf file. Then I began to notice some problems; all power management options (suspend, idle timers, etc) have no effect. I checked the startup logs and it seems that ACPI was not loading due to my aged bios (yes it's the newest version available). I tried using acpi=force in the boot options, and viola: power management is working. But that made two other problems crop up.

Problem 2: Since using acpi=force, the laptop runs so hot it sometimes gets sluggish and locks up. I tried installing "thinkfan" from
the ubuntu repositories to have some way of easily changing the fan behavior(which I believe relies on ACPI in some fashion). No luck there. ACPI seems to not see my fan at all, and it only kicks on when the bios high temp failsafe is tripped. I should also mention I am using Xubuntu (for the lighter desktop). I'm still kind of an Ubuntu-noob, so I wasn't sure what other info to post.

Ubuntu :: Laptop Runs Unbearably Slow When A Dock Is Running?

Nov 29, 2010

My friend recently gave up on Windows Vista on his old laptop and installed Ubuntu 10.10 64 Bit on it. He came over the other day because I wanted to show him and install some cool things. One of those things was a dock. I tried both AWN and Docky. When the dock started running his system became so unbearably slow. Like it took over 5 seconds to respond to movements sometimes. When he closed the dock everything went speedy again. He has a whole lot of compiz stuff running now, including desktop cube/animations burning up windows when he closes them. I'm wondering why the dock is causing such a major slow down.

His specs aren't even that bad. He has a Dell XPS M1330 with the following specs:Intel Core 2 Duo T6400 (2.0GHZ)4GB of RAMNVIDIA 8400M GSMy laptop has very similar specs to his, except my integrated graphics card is an ATI 3200 and it runs AWN and Docky flawlessly. Anyone have any ideas what could be causing this? His graphics card was one of those faulty NVidia cards from back then but he already had it fixed twice and its been running Vista without any graphic issues fine since. I didn't get a chance to look at it again since then so I couldn't play around.. I'm thinking he might have possibly messed something up playing around when he first installed it. I may suggest a clean install and do everything again to see if the problem persists.

Ubuntu :: Keeps Waking From Suspend Mode ?

Dec 18, 2010

Is there a way to check what caused Ubuntu to wake from suspend mode?

Ubuntu 10.10 on a desktop.

Have tried disabling all BIOS wake events (and WOL).

Have ensured mouse doesn't move.

Need a way to know what caused it to wake. Happens 90% of the time, usually 3 seconds after it suspends.

Fedora :: Trouble With Waking From Suspend Mode?

Feb 22, 2010

Is anyone else having trouble with waking up from suspend mode? After bringing the computer (Dell Studio 1555) back from suspend mode, GNOME moves very slowly. Cursor is unresponsive for significant amounts of time - any open windows do not respond to selection... Effects don't usually go away until a reboot is performed. This evening, one such restart resulted in a crash, where the shutdown process locked at the attempt to shut down the mouse/pointer module..

Ubuntu Networking :: No Network After Suspend Mode?

Feb 10, 2011

I have never had a working suspend. But ... every year or so I try it DOH!!! to see if the updates have solved itI used suspend mode today, and when I woke the system up , all seemed fine untill I tried to browse the internet.It told me I was offline. no ammount of clicking "go online" would work.So, then I noticed the network connection was broken.I did a few things to get connected, and I want you all to tell me what I need to put back again ! IPV4 and IPV6, I unclicked the box to require this for connection to complete.Somewhere else, there was a list of servers to ignore. I removed them all. (I think there werre 3) one was localhost another was similar, and the third was a number.I just want to know what these should be set at, because just because it works - doesn't make it right

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Turn OFF Suspend Mode?

Feb 26, 2011

Disclaimer: I have very little linux desktop experience...I've only used command line stuff for work in my previous life. I am joyfully coming off of a long addiction to MS but am having a bit of a hard time adjusting.

ISSUE: I can't seem to figure out how to turn off suspend mode. I have turned every setting I could find in the power management to "do nothing" and I have turned off all of my power mgmt options in the system bios. A "friend" suggested I remove HAL...which caused me to lose my secondary internal HD and all of my usb devices...and the issue persisted. Every 20 minutes of no action the screen blanks and my monitor goes into standby mode which is making watching movies in bed a less than relaxing experience.

Some background that may or may not be useful: I installed kubunutu 10.04 (2.6.32-28-generic) from cd on a fresh HD. Initially I had issues with the wireless network and alsa/pulse sound. I worked through those through much trial and error but the suspend issue persists. I've uninstalled and re-installed lots of packages I probably shouldn't have been messing with and would really like to avoid a reinstall as this seems to be the final fix I need to get things running the way I want them.
