OpenSUSE Hardware :: Monitor Wont Turn Off After Shutdown?

Mar 1, 2010

Ever since I installed openSuse 11.2, my monitor wont turn off after I shutdown my computer.

The monitor light changes to orange, like its turning itself off. But then the light changes to green and the message "no signal detected" comes on - then the light turns orange. This cycle repeats untill I manually hit the power button to turn it off.

I booted to windows 7 (dual boot), shutdown, but it is still happening!

Like I said, this started happening immediately after I installed openSuse.

SUSE :: OpenSUSE Crashes - Freezes When Turn Off My Monitor

Jul 6, 2009

Last friday I went home from work and just turned off my monitor, as a program I had written needed to run a durability test over the weekend. Unfortunately it seems that the moment I turned off my monitor, Linux just froze, quite evidently as it said this morning that the time was still Friday 17:13.

From the syslog I got the following on that time:

What this means and what I can do? It's not the first time it crashes as soon as I turn my monitor off.

OpenSUSE Install :: Shutdown Fails To Turn Off The PC?

Nov 17, 2010

this problem is a well known one as far as I have read, but the solution is yet to come.I formatted and installed OpenSuse 11.3 KDE as the only OS on a PC with 768 RAM, two Hard Disks (6+8 GB), mobo Abit BE6, processor Celeron Coppermine 1100Mhz (with slotket adapter), video card Matrox G400+, Sound Blaster Live! Value.HD 1 is set root and ext4 + 1 GB swap, HD2 is /home ext3.The live OpenSuse CD worked fine, shutdown turns off the power, while the installed one won't. I formatted twice, and the problem persist. Reboot works fine.At shutdown, the hard disks are turned off while the screen and power are still on, so I have to press the power button to turn off completely.

Yesterday I wasted all the day with this problem without solving it, I've read many threads but no solution worked. That PC obviously worked fine with both Windows 98 and XP.Those problems are in the "out of the box" installation, without any setting altered.I've tried disabling ACPI, PM control by APM, and power management features in the bios (latest 2001's Award bios for this old mobo).I've set alternatively pci=noacpi, nosmp, apm=power-off, acpi=force in GRUB options. I've updated the distro. I've set value poweroff for HALT in etc/sysconfig. Nothing changed.I've also tried macumba and ancient celtic cerimonies, yet they didn't work.Is it possible to solve this problem or it's a known unsolved bug? Loading OS screen:Those are the final screens after shutdown where it stops

OpenSUSE Install :: Turn Bluetooth Off As Default During Boot?

Mar 16, 2010

Since 11.2 bluetooth is defaulted to always turned on during boot. Is there any way to have bluetooth off as default during boot? I don't want it completely disabled as I sometimes require it but I'd prefer if the BT radio was in the off state as default.Really the bluetooth state should be persistent across boots - i.e. remember the last state.

OpenSUSE Install :: Way To Turn The Terminal Auto-detect Off?

Jun 14, 2011

SuSE 11.4 is a wonderful release, but two chronic problems remain. The most serious is the inability to get Gnome to recognize an intel driver parameter specification in xorg.conf or 50-screen.conf with a predetermined, working screen specification. With the latest update that includes: [url]

Gnome will boot up in a strange resolution with a display of a pink screen and fragments of icons split and duplicated over the display. Teasing open the terminal parameter screen, terminal parameters (resolution, horizontal rate) appear to be correct. The terminal type is 'undefined', whether the screen is operating correctly or not, and any attempt to set defaults are refused. Perhaps the intel driver has not been selected by the operating system. Is there a way to specify a default screen driver?

This has been a chronic problem, now aggravated with the latest update to the point where the computer is now rendered inoperative.

Ironically, the other problem, that of the difficulty in downloading certain update files also remains. Had an elaborate update workaround procedure not been followed, the system would still be usable.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Turn Off Monitor / Screen?

Jun 20, 2011

how to turn off your laptop screen in Ubuntu using a script/command, but none seem to have worked for me except one.

after digging around, I found the following suggestions:

1. xset dpms force off or xset dpms force suspend

This didn't work for many people, nor did it work for me, as the monitor would just turn on again after a few seconds. The second other suggestion I found to make this "stick was:

2. sleep 1; xset dpms force off
or sleep 1; xset dpms force suspend

This worked for some people, by delaying the monitor off function by one second, but it did not work for me, as the monitor would turn on again by itself after one minute exactly. Maybe those who thought this was the solution just walked away and never really found out their monitor plays sneak-peak with them. The next solution i found digging around was supposed to really make the monitor stay powered off:

3. sleep 1; && xset dpms force off
or sleep 1; && xset dpms force suspend

But this didn't work either; what a disappointment, and it also made my CPU and HDD freak out for a while while my monitor was off. So after some more digging around, I came up with the following: (and I don't remember where i got this, whether it was from here or elsewhere on the internet, but if it is your creation, please contact me and I'll edit the post to give you credit)

4. create a file and save as something like in a folder of your preference with the following in it:

import time
import subprocess
from Xlib import X


Then just go to: System>Preferences>Keyboard Shortcuts and assign a Keyboard combination shortcut to call and initiate the script. I chose "<Ctrl>+M" because it's easy to remember.

Make sure to disable any same keyboard shortcuts you may have in Compiz to avoid conflicts.

This final script just worked perfectly for me. And the Monitor just stays off until I shake the mouse or press a key on the keyboard, and my CPU and HDD don't rev up like a Harley. This final solution seems to be working for everyone of my friends without a glitch.

General :: Iiyama Monitor Not Turn On Until Booted Into OS

Feb 12, 2010

I have been dual booting my XP and Ubuntu for a while now. However, my pc monitor does not turn on until I am booted into windows/linux. This means I have to 'guess' to a certain extent which OS to select on boot (using GRUB). I expect I will have to change a setting in the BIOS but I am not too sure what to look out for.

After turning on my pc I have to restart it for it too do anything, it appears to just hang!However as I cannot see what is happening due to the monitor problem I am completely in the dark as to why it would do this/what is going on! I have XP installed at the front of my hard drive and Ubuntu at the back. It worked ok the first time I tried it after install (still had the monitor problem but was able to guess) then after that this random problem!

OpenSUSE Install :: Services Fail At Boot - Save To Turn Them Off?

Jun 2, 2011

during boot-up on my desktop, running openSUSE 11.4 with KDE 4.6.3, there are sometimes (not always) some failed services. Most of the time it is postfix and some other service. Today it is just mcelog. So when I switch to the first terminal by strg+alt+F1, I see that mcelog has failed.The system is running anyway, so I wonder if it is safe to turn them off? I would turn off postfix and mcelog. Do I harm the system with that? Would it boot again, after I have turned them off? Or is it recommended to let them stay as they are?As far as I understood, postfix is just a mailserver, which would be used, if I would run a mailserver on my own. But I donīt. I just read mails, via IMAP... But mcelog? Whats that?

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.

Hardware :: Monitor Goes Dead And Won't Turn Back On Till Hardboot?

Jul 1, 2010

I am running on ubuntu 10.04 and using the latest nvidia driver. What I experience is a random black screen, my monitor goes dead and won't turn back on till I hardboot. I had this issue on windows and solved it by downloading rivatuner and telling it to force my 9700m into staying in 3d performance mode at all times. I know it has nothing to do with temps or anything like that. All I need to know is how I can duplicate what I did with rivatuner on windows

General :: Turn Off Monitor (Energy Saving) While In Text Console Mode

Nov 3, 2010

How to configure Linux text console to automatically turn of the monitor after some time? And by "text console" I mean that thing that you get on ctrl+alt+F[1-6], which is what you get whenever X11 is not running. And, no, I'm not using any framebuffer console (it's a plain, good and old 80x25 text-mode). Many years ago, I was using Slackware Linux, and it used to boot up in text-mode. Then you would manually run startx after the login. Anyway, the main login "screen" was the plain text-mode console, and I remember that the monitor used to turn off (energy saving mode, indicated by a blinking LED) after some time. Now I'm using Gentoo, and I have a similar setup.

The machine boots up in text-mode, and only rarely I need to run startx. I say this because this is mostly my personal Linux server, and there is no need to keep X11 running all the time. (which means: I don't want to use GDM/KDM or any other graphical login screen). But now, in this Gentoo text-mode console, the screen goes black after a while, but the monitor does not enter any energy-saving mode (the LED is always lit). Yes, I've waited long enough to verify this. Thus, my question is: how can I configure my current system to behave like the old one? In other words, how to make the text console trigger energy-saving mode of the monitor?

Hardware :: Dual Monitors Nvidia 9500 GT - Turn On The 2nd Monitor After Startup ?

Feb 25, 2010

I have Ubuntu 9.10 installed on my computer. I also have Galaxy (Nvidia) 9500 GT PCI-E card installed on it. I can get both monitors (Acer X223w) to work but every time I shut off the computer and turn it back on the second monitor is shut off. I just need to turn it back on using Nvidia X Server Settings. I have tried to save my X configuratin file but I keep getting an error of:" Unable to remove old X config backup file '/etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup'. I have a feeling this is because I am not signed in as root. Is this correct? If this is the case is there a way to get to sign in as root not using the command lines? Otherwise they need to remove this button. I can manually create a backup (copy paste into a text file). I think. Getting back to my Xorg.conf file, I think I need to modify it to have two screens. I have also got some information on my video card using the lspci command. I think I need some information from this. I have written below (towards the bottom) what I think the file should be. Now before I do this, does anybody know of an easy way to back up my whole computer? With my luck I am about to screw something up big time. I think I can just get away with the text file that I copied from the Xorg. Worst case scenario I will just manually replace the file.

Information on my computer:
OS: Ubuntu 9.10 32bit
Motherboard: ASUS M3A78
CPU: AMD Phenom 9500 Quad Core
Video Card: Galaxy Geforce 9500 GT 1GB 128 bit DDR2 (Nvidia)
Hard Drive: Hitachi 1 TB Sata Drive 3 Gb/sec 7200 RPM
Ram: 4 GB (I think, its been awhile since I built this thing)
DVD Burner: LG

Here is a copy of my xorg.conf file: (I don't think it matters but I have both monitors turned on right now).

from the lspci | grep VGA:

I think I need the 01:00 information for my Bus ID. The only thing that I am confuse on is that I was expecting to see two of them.

Okay, this is what I think I need to do: I tried to add color to make it easier to find the changes I made but for some reason I cannot. I will add **** on the end (right side) so my additions and questions will be easier to find.

Do I need to add another Device for the video? Doesn't make sense to me since I only have one video card. I was told it should be based on the # of chips on the card. So I guess I should have two of them since I have two outputs.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.3 And Monitor Detection?

Jul 22, 2010

I opted to blow away my system (no did not save xorg.conf), and do a clean install of 11.3. Not a big deal to blow it away, nothing lost.

Dell Dimension C521, 3GB RAM, Athlon DualCore
OpenSuse 11.3 x64
Nvidia GeForce 6150LE (on mainboard)
Dell 2048FP 24" Monitor, connected via VGA

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.

OpenSUSE Install :: OS 11.3: Configure The Monitor Settings?

Jul 17, 2010

The default Gnome desktop now has a 1600x1200 @ 75 Hz which fit my monitor but is a little too big (or at least the font sizes are too small). I would like to switch to a lower resolution. I don't find anywhere in Yast how to configure the monitor settings. No more sax2, no more /etc/X11/xorg.conf? What does replace them?

I mean, where can I set which monitor I"m using (Targa TM4896-1), what are the screen resolutions supported, if I want hardware 3D acceleration (or not), if I want to use dualhead (Matrox G400 DH)?

OpenSUSE Install :: Can't Boot Correctly Without Monitor

Oct 20, 2010

I have a few machines set up to run off in the corner without monitors attached. I installed 11.3 (32-bit) on a couple of them and they run fine during setup but then I move them to the corner with no monitor attached and they won't boot correctly.

By this I mean they still run some apps I setup to run automatically from daemon scripts, but I can't ping or access the machines at all. It's almost like they aren't booting all the way up. Hooking a monitor up fixes this but I don't have enough monitors to keep these hooked up like this.

I have a couple of other 11.3 systems that are setup almost the same way but I put graphics drivers on those and they work with or without monitors attached. I don't want to have to put graphics drivers on those systems.

OpenSUSE Install :: Unable To Boot When No Monitor Is Attached

May 14, 2010

I can''t make the machine booth when a monitor is NOT attached to the machine. The PC seems to get past the P.O.S.T with minimal HDD activity, and then it simply hangs there, doing nothing. I know Linux is not booted because the HDD flashes briefly only 3-4 times and then absolutely nothing. When a monitor is attached, everything works perfectly.

I read somewhere that this happend when GRUB tries to display graphics, so I edited the menu.lst and removed the graphics line within it, which causes GRUB to display a B/W clear-text boot-menu (when a monitor is attached), but the machine still won't boot with no monitor. I also edited inittab to boot to level 3, same outcome.

OpenSUSE Install :: Default Resolution Too High For Monitor ?

Sep 13, 2011

I have a problem with my screen resolution in Linux. This happens with both openSUSE 11.4 and Fedora 15. The moment my PC restarts after I have installed the operating system it will boot up with a screen resolution higher than my monitor supports. My screen supports a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 @ 75Hz and Linux sets the default resolution way too high at boot, now all I get is a message from my screen asking me very nicely to change the signal timings, but I can't because I can't see anything to change it to a lower value (I don't want it so high anyways because then everything is too **** small). My monitor is a SONY GDM-5410 and the Graphics card is an AMD Radeon HD 4870 1GB. It nly works when I boot the system to FailSafe mode, but then I can't cahnge it permanently.

Problem is that after the screen comes up to chose the default version or failsafe, my monitor shows no input. If I delete the VGA 0x031 (i think that's the number) on the Options line in the screen where you chose the version, I get my command line interface.

Can I make the blank VGA options permanent?
