OpenSUSE Install :: PC Keeps Loggin Off Accout Everytime I Wake Up Monitor From Standby / Sort It?
Jun 29, 2011
Like subject says, everytime my computer put the monitor on standby when I wake up the monitor the computer keeps loggin me out of my account, have to log in everytime i wake up the **** monitor, anyone knows a way to fix this behavior?
When I put my laptop to sleep (clamshell close) it goes to sleep and is a happy laptop.
When I open the laptop, I can hear the thing going and waking up. However the screen stays off. Brightness keys do nothing. (however they did nothing in the first place as I'm using the NVIDIA driver). I have to do a hard reset to fix things.
The strange thing about this is Sleeping / Waking up has never been an issue till about today.
I downloaded banshee because i knew that could put movies on my ipod, but everytime i run banshee my ipod doesn't show up. i tried started it, then plugging it in and still didnt show up. Anyone knows what the problem is?
I don't know how to stop this monitor standby thing. When I'm not using the computer, the screensaver will start after a few minutes, what I want. But after a few minutes then, it'll go black. How can I stop this from happening?
Ever since I have been using Mepis 8 my monitor keeps defaulting to standby mode unless I keep using the mouse. I have tried all the usual things within KDE but with no success. Quite often I watch a dvd film on my PC and it is most annoying when the monitor switches off during a film. Is there an option within xorg.conf to stop this from occurring? My monitor is an LCD Benq FP91G+.
how can i solve a small little problem: Every time i start opensuse 11.2 i get a window asking me to input the keyring password... this started to happen after i installed Pidgin. how can i stop the keyring from asking me the password everytime??? how can i even get to this "keyring"??
I just installed ubuntu 9.10 server edition (twice, just to be sure) and the installation ran fine, but when I try to boot into the system, i get past the BIOS loading screen then my monitor just goes into power saving mode and I can't get it to see a signal from the PC. I know the OS is running, because I can ssh into it from my laptop, and I know the monitor works, because that machine had a windows OS on it before and that worked fine with the same monitor. I had thought it might be a graphics card thing with ubuntu trying to push out at a resolution not supported by the monitor, but I find that unlikely as it's brand new this month. If anyone has any idea of something I can try to diagnose the problem, that would be great. As I said, I still have ssh access to the PC, so I can basically try anything on it that I could if I was physically at the box itself.
I am running Ubuntu 9.10 on my desktop and everynow and then I get this annoying problem. If I walk away for a bit, just upstairs to use the bathroom, sometimes when I come back the monitor is off and the power light is blinking. You know, like what monitors usually do when they are still powered on but the screensaver is done playing. However, this happens to me well before the 10 minutes that the screensaver is supposed to end.
It does not always happen, and I can't really isolate what may be causing it, as I never take a note of what I'm doing when I go pee. HOwever, I rarely do anything other that run VLC, Chrome, Firefox, or OpenOffice Writer.
The problem is that the screen won't wake up. Moving the mouse does nothing. Jamming some keys does nothing. Trying to go to text terminal does nothing. I have to either REISUB or hold down the power button on the tower.
I just recently got my old box back and now I'm running 10.4. I've had some minor issues that I have got through but now there is one which seems to really be frustrating me. At any random time my monitor may go black as if it is in sleep mode. The problem is when it does this, no mouse movement or keystroke will wake the thing up. So I am forced to press the power button. When I press the power button the Ubuntu logo pops up on the screen as if it magically woke up but it is too late because now the computer is shutting down... When I go to System>Preferences>Screensaver I get to the options for the screensaver and I have about 2 seconds before that triggers the screen going black.
I can't even start until I know that my screen won't shut off at any random moment!
I cannot install Ubuntu 10.04, or even boot into the live CD. I'm not an expert, but I've used Ubuntu for several years, and I'm pretty sure I'm not doing anything stupid... Here's what happens when I boot with the Ubuntu 10.04 live CD: I get a purple screen with just an accessibility(?) symbol at the bottom (this lasts 15 seconds). The screen goes black, with a flashing cursor, then changes back to purple, this time with an Ubuntu logo, with 5 dots acting as a progress indicator (this lasts about 1 minute). The screen switches to standby. The CD drive continues to make noises for another minute or so, then stops.
I physically removed my graphics card (ATI Radeon HD 5770), and plugged the monitor straight into the VGA port on the motherboard. Now the CD boots up fine. I could try installing Ubuntu at this point, while my graphics card is unplugged, and then plug my graphics card back in, and see if it starts working then.
Just got Ubuntu (latest, greatest) installed. IIRC I selected 'auto loggin' from the install CD, but I'm unsure how this works. I have a user loggin 'ray' and a PW that's all OK. In the GUI, if I want to do something heavy it asks me for a PW which tells me that I'm 'root' at that time.But at the CL prompt I can't log in as root with no PW nor with the PW I use as 'ray'. BTW, is there somewhere I can bitch about the install CD? It was not an unpleasant experience, but I think it could be a bit better.
I tried to install on an Armari Gravistar machine Open Suse 11.3 and 11.2 at 64 bit but both haven't worked, after the welcome I press install, it loads something and then the computer is on the screen black and nothing happens. The 11.3 at 32 bit installs but in this manner I cannot use the 16GB RAM of the machine.
This morning I woke up and while my computer was turned on, I couldn't wake my monitor up from "sleep". So I turned off the computer and turned it back on. I noticed that the normal boot screen (which usually shows a monster truck from Abit) was pretty severely distorted.Basically all output to the screen is so distorted visually that I can't tell what's going on. I've attached two images that I took below:
The first image is at the very beginning of the boot (perhaps when the monster truck should normally show <- sometimes it shows and sometimes it is just too distorted to tell anything). The second image is after it's been on for about a minute, and you can see a little text box giving me some sort of warning (which I of course can't read). I can click "OK" or something along those lines by using they keyboard though and progress to a new warning box, but again, can't read what they say. How can I figure out what the problem is?s it definitely a videocard thing, or could this be caused by anything? I don't know if it's a software problem (running Ubuntu 10.04), or if something went wrong with my hardware overnight.
I am a complete newbie who recently installed openSUSE 11.3 (64-bit). My desktop is KDE. Motherboard is MSI X58 Eclipse. Audio card (came with MB) is Creative Labs Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme H/W.
As the title of my message indicates, there's no sound coming out from the speakers. I know that both speakers and sound card work fine because I just tested them under Windows XP.
I launched YaST, chose the Sound icon, clicked on Add, selected Creative Labs. The sound card model that comes close to the one I have should be X-Fi. So I chose that, selected Quick Automatic Setup and I get the following error message: An error occurred during the installation of X-Fi. The kernel module snd-ctxfi for sound support could not be loaded. This can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
I then went to Open Source - SoundCard Support (Creative Labs' Open Source - SoundCard Support) but I did not download any drivers because of the following warnings: * THIS IS AN UNSUPPORTED BETA DRIVER. There is no technical support for this driver. * This beta driver has only been tested on the following 32-bit / 64-bit Linux distributions: Ubuntu� 7.10, openSUSE� 10.3 and Red Hat� Enterprise Linux� 5.1 (64-bit only). * We recommend that only experienced users install this driver. Do not install this driver on a system used to perform critical tasks.
I have tried installing 11.2 64 bit with Gnome. Every time if finishes the install and reboots it will start HAL daemon and just black screen. I have tried loading with using the number 3 with no video. Same thing black screen after loading HAL daemon. I did a install with selecting VESA same thing.
Well my wireless was working fine about a week ago, i switched isp's and now everytime i try to connect i get a bug. Distribution: openSUSE 11.2 (i586) Gnome Release: 2.28.2 (null) (SUSE) BugBuddy Version: 2.28.0
System: Linux 188.8.131.52-0.2-desktop #1 SMP PREEMPT 2010-03-16 21:25:39 +0100 i686 X Vendor: The X.Org Foundation X Vendor Release: 10605000
I have cleaned-intall 11.4 After the installation, the KDE environment is not booting as the default, but runtime level 5 boot instead. I have checked my installation and ensured to have KDE4 installed.
Please advise how to have KDE boot.
My graphics card is ATI Radeon Mobility X1400 on Acer Travelmate 4670.
So I have a fresh updated install of 10.10 on dell dimension 4550
The pc connects to my monitor through a dlink KVM switch so I can switch back and forth between computers.
When I reboot my monitor settings disapear and everything is real real large.
If i disconnect from the KVM and connect Ubuntu directly to the monitor and detect monitor it will allow me to adjust settings so everything looks normal. Until I reboot and I am back to the same huge icons again. If I try to go back and adjust monitor settings there are only 2 settings options because it does not see my monitor through the kvm switch again.
I have installed Opensuse 11.4 and the desktop won't start i get an green striped screen, i have tried to run yast but it seems mine NVIDIA isn't correct installed.
I have an NVidia SE6150 Graphic Card and i have tried to configure the startup parameter vga=0x317, i have changed this to vga=0 to get vesa mode but that doesn't work, i have an wide screen monitor that supports 24 bit and 1360x768.
I use an IBM Thinkpad T30 with an ATI Radeon Mobility 7500 graphics card as my work machine, mostly at a desk, using a docking station to link it into a monitor. I upgraded to Lucid last weekend. When using the integral screen on the laptop the graphics have been fine, but when using a monitor I initially got some very poor contrast, brightness and gamma output, described in this bug.
According to the advice in that bug report, I upgraded the kernel, with Kernelcheck automatically updating me to 2.6.35-candela. Now, rather than poor graphics with the monitor it just hangs on the splash screen, displaying the words Ubuntu with the dots underneath.
Reading around, when similar problems have been seen in previous versions of Ubuntu it has been a graphics issue, which fits. One piece of advice I've seen quite commonly is to remove the "quiet splash" from grub, which I've tried but doesn't work. I am tempted to try and work through the different grub commands these guys used to tackle a similar problem with the live CD:
But am a bit reticent as I don't know what they all do.
As an aside, the 2.6.35-candela kernel brings up a bunch of errors on boot, described at the link below, but reading that thread they don't look like they would cause my problem:
Running Opensuse 11.1 on an HP laptop. When I resume from hibernation or standby, I usually have to wait for about a minute for the wireless card to find my router. Is there any way to speed up this time to connect process ?
Interestingly when I boot from cold, the wireless connection is most times ready to go as soon as the boot has finished. So just wondering how I can make things quicker for resume from standby or hibernation
Now everytime i start amarok it keep crash. This is the terminal output:
ari@linux-2tny:~> amarok InnoDB: The log sequence number in ibdata files does not match InnoDB: the log sequence number in the ib_logfiles! 110109 2:47:25 InnoDB: Database was not shut down normally! InnoDB: Starting crash recovery. InnoDB: Reading tablespace information from the .ibd files...
I don't have idea what's the problem. FYI, I installed nvidia driver before this happens but donn't know if that is related to this problem.
I move from Win to SUSE. I install Suse 11 on notebook with pluged extern monitor, but when i un-plug this monitor then no screen is visible - only black screen. In "failsave" it works but in normal ee :-(and I tryed clone screen- nothing) SUSE detect only ext monitor. Manual settings of resolution is not working.
When doing the install, all appears to go well. I added the "nomodeset" option after the first boot to avoid the graphics issues. KDE comes up and is in 800x600 mode at 50hz. That is the best resolution it will show. All other options in the configure desktop applet are lower. This monitor was driven at 1900x1200 on the same config with 11.2.
In the nVidia-Settings applet (run as root), it shows the display as "CRT-0". 11.2 showed it as a Dell.
