This is probably really a quick fix but I cannot seem to find it. When I close my laptop lid it brings me to the standby screen which then asks me to put my password in, when i log in I managed to make it not ask me for a password but on the standby screen it still does.
It's just annoying me a little and wouldnt mind just being able to open my laptop and go. also same kinda problem with installing software, always asking for passwords but I guess i can live with that one.
I am running Ubuntu 9.10 on a PC. When the computer is on standby and I want to fire it up again, Ubuntu demands a password. Since the computer is inside a private house, and I never put it on standby unless I am at home, entering a password is an unnecessary nuisance. Is there some way to turn this feature off?
Am currently using 8.10 (xubuntu). The machine's "issue" (I've searched for a reference, but the one I found was a forum thread with no answers) is that when the display is set to go to sleep after 8 minutes of idleness in the power manager, it projects a black screen instead.
I'm not sure what different 'power saving modes' a display/OS usually has, but in Windows, when set to 'go to sleep' the screen goes into standby, i.e something like 'no signal', and from what I've read a lot more power is saved in that mode than by simply showing a black screen.
It was the same when I was running 8.04 with a different graphics card, if that matters. Haven't been able to try a different display. Screensaver and timing and resume normal video out works ok.
Plenty of people seem to be having issues with the nvidia graphics drivers, so I thought I'd add my woes to the heap. My issue is that I run two screens under twinview, but the second one doesn't work for some reason. More specifically, the Nvidia-settings tool is able to detect my second monitor, and I'm able to assign it a resolution and position and the like, and my desktop seems to extend over to where the second monitor is, but the monitor just remains in standby mode.
This happened with the drivers proprietary drivers that Nvidia tried to install (version 173 I believe) so I removed them and tried to install the 195 drivers manually, which I eventually figured out how to do (by blacklisting the nouveau module amongst other things). This still didn't fix things, and gave me the same issue.
(As an aside, where can I find the nvidia-glx-195 and nvidia-modaliases-195 packages, as they seem to have disappeared from the LP-PPA-nvidia-vdpau repository where they apparently used to be?)
The strange part though, is that my second screen works fine if I don't install any nvidia drivers, and just use the System->Preferences->Monitors applet. The second screen comes out of standby and works nicely.
One other little thing I've noticed that may have something to do with it, is that if I switch the outputs that the monitors are connected to, the other monitor will work. The output whose monitor doesn't work is always the one that has the DVI->VGA converter. Could this have something to do with it?
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.
As part of making a encrypted private folder i told encfs to encrypt swap space on my pc knowing that this would probably break sleep and hibernation. That said i just turned on ubuntu for 5 mins, had to go away for a bit, when i came back to unlock the screen my password was not being accepted, and another 5 mins later the screen said that my session had timed out-i had to do a cold reboot Does this mean i cant lock the screen anymore?
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.
brand new 2 Ubantu & set up standard Ubantu compartment accessed via 1 user name only and password. 1st few times all good but now suddenly, unexpectedly password declared invalid. Had written down password so it is correct & not entry error. Not know how to reset password or bypass 'username/password log on screen' Am on an Acer 5542G with windows 7 home premium.
This happens on Ubuntu 9.04, 10.04 and Mint 8 "Helena".
The computer: Aser Aspire One D150 with 2gb of RAM, Ubuntu/Mint (depends on the day) booting from a SDHC card.
Problem: When I unplug the computer to move it or plug it in it will go immediately into standby. I go to wake it up, it runs for a few seconds and goes back into standby. After that, it is fine until I unplug it or plug it in again.
I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop, dual-boot with Win7 and Ubuntu 10.10. Everything works as it should in Ubuntu, except when I resume from standby the computer goes into a "kernel panic," the screen freezes and caps lock light blinks.
I travel with my laptop and use standby all the time being a student, so I've been forced to use Windows 7 because it's far more reliable (isn't that funny >_<) when I resume from standby..
After literally searching for DAYS, no solutions have worked for me, and apparently this is a pretty big issue. I would love to get Ubuntu running full-time on my laptop. Also, my display drivers aren't officially supported by Ubuntu, but I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it.
I just switched back to Ubuntu since I got my SSD and Ubuntu feels now very nice..
I just was confronted with one problem. At my Home PC I was working normally using FileZilla and drag and dropped something from FTP to local machine, then suddently my PC locked and the Screensaver appeard. I mean this Matrix Saver is nice but not when you want to work
Then first I thought it simply locked the workspace and tried to login, but it did not accept any key input, then it just went to standby after some sec..
I really wonder how that can happen, I had deactivated automatic standby in the energy settings, because I don't use it.
I'm using Karmic since November and standby/sleep has always worked fine. Some weeks ago, it stopped working fine.
After a reboot, I can put the system in standby only once. If I try standby after that, the system seems to do a normal standby, but it resumes at the moment the fans would normally stop working.
I tried different things like the s2ram program, pmi action sleep, etc. I went to the BIOS and tried a number of things, one was succesfull: disable USB. When USB is disabled I can go into standby every time. When I enable USB again (even with no devices connected), standby only works once again.
So, how can I disable USB at the moment I go into standby?
Is there any way to make it so I can let my laptop go into standby that is connected to my printer and make it so that I can still see the printer from my other systems. Then if I print something it brings the networked printer/laptop out of standby and prints my job. I just ran a test and when my system went into standby the printer went "offline" and I couldn't print from it. I don't want to be forced to leave my computer fully on 24/7 to have a networked printer.
I have an account where a user has no password. And the tickbox is ticked where it doesn't ask her to enter one at login.When her screen gets locked though, I can't access it again.. i.e. a password is required. And entering nothing doesn't work.
i am running 9.10 on a compaq 2209cl laptop. has been working great with no issues till i updated the other day. when i come out of standby (opening laptop lid, or hit the power button to wake up) my network connection does not start, and there is no wireless networks displayed. a reboot usually takes care of this prob until it goes into standby again. just wanna know if there is a way i can solve this myself or if i gotta wait for a patch? it aint too bad but is sure is annoying when i get on and off this thing all the time.
I just bought a Logitech V470 bluetooth mouse. It's no problem to let it work under Koala 9.10 (gnome), but after shutdown/standby/sleep, it doesn't work anymore. With my USB mouse, I have to click the bluetooth icon and select 'switch off bluetooth'. After that, I click 'switch on bluetooth' and bluetooth works again. I thought switching on and off bluetooth with the applet is the same as 'sudo /etc/init.d/bluetooth start/stop', but it isn't! The previous command greyes out/in the bluetooth icon, but it doesn't resume my bluetooth. If 'sudo /etc/init.d/bluetooth restart' would work, I would be able to add this line into /etc/pm/sleep.d, so it's automatically loaded on resume.
Didn't know where to post this as it doesn't really call under desktop or installations haha.Anyway, I have a bit of a problem. I've Installed Ubuntu 10.04 with and encrypted LVM password and it went on ok. When booting up the computer it comes to the screen where you enter your password to unlock the LVM which looks great.However after installing the NVidia graphics driver for the laptop and rebooting, the LVM password entry screen seems to be too big to fit on the screen, not looking very good....
I uninstalled the email portion of Ubuntu and rebooted the make sure that everything was good. Ubuntu came back to the login splash screen-I selected my login and entered my Correct password-Ubuntu splashed up screen writting (Unable to read as its to quick) and Ubuntu then returns to the login screen. Incidently when I enter an incorrect password Ubuntu tells me that it is incorrect but with my correct password it just returns to the login splash screen.
