Ubuntu :: Laptop Standby: Wireless Tries To Connect While On Standby

Jun 27, 2010

Running Ubuntu 10.04 on a dual-boot Windows 7 laptop.

On "suspend," the wireless card appears to close connections correctly. Then, >15 minutes later, the laptop's wifi LED lights up and the laptop generates heat.

The computer should be on standby, but instead it's waking itself up and running down the battery.

Are there any programs that might be failing to suspend for sleep? Are there any settings to prevent the wifi card from waking the computer?

I only noticed this because the laptop was getting hot and the battery was wearing down.

Ubuntu :: Networked Printer/Standby Laptop?

Oct 13, 2010

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.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Quits Working After Standby

Jan 13, 2010

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.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Make Things Quicker For Resume From Standby Or Hibernation?

Jul 1, 2010

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

Ubuntu :: Computer Keeps Going Into Standby / Fix It?

Apr 16, 2010

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.

Ubuntu :: Asking For Password On Standby Screen?

Apr 14, 2010

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.

Ubuntu :: Kernel Panic After Standby In 10.10?

Feb 9, 2011

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.

Ubuntu :: Gnome Goes Into Standby While Working

May 25, 2011

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.

Ubuntu :: Display - Black Screen Instead Of Standby

Mar 21, 2010

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.

Ubuntu :: Standby Doesn't Work Anymore?

Apr 26, 2010

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?

Ubuntu :: Bluetooth Does Not Work After Resume From Sleep / Standby

Jan 21, 2010

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.

Ubuntu :: Need Password For Ending Standby / Turn This Feature Off?

Mar 11, 2010

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?

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Lucid Nvidia Driver Second Screen In Standby?

May 1, 2010

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?

Ubuntu :: Screen Doesn't Wake Up After Standby / Sort It?

Jun 8, 2010

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.

General :: Put Harddisks Of A Md-software-raid To Standby?

Aug 26, 2011

I have a home-fileserver with 6 desktop harddisks in a md-raid.

The server isn't accessed a lot, so I think it would be good for the harddrives to go in standby-mode after some idle time (e.g. with the hdparm -S or hd-idle command).

Is this safe when using mdadm or could this cause errors/degraded harddisks?

Hardware :: Monitor Defaulting To Standby Mode?

Aug 15, 2009

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+.

Networking :: Wifi Won't Reconnect After Standby Or Hibernate

May 3, 2010

I am using WICD as my wireless network manager and it works connecting to a network for the first time. But when I resume my laptop from hibernate or standby, WICD will not reconnect to the network and gets stuck on obtaining an IP address. And if I try to change networks without hibernating I get the same problem. Also, I notice that the network name is stagnant. I connect to multiple wifi networks a day because of school. When I leave my "home" network and connect to my "school" network WICD still says "Homebtaining IP address" even thought it should say "schoolbtaining IP address." My thoughts are that it isn't releasing the network properly and when its trying to connect it can't because it still thinks it's connected. The only solution I have found is to restart my laptop every time I want to connect to a new network, or shut down every time I am done using my laptop, which is a major inconvenience.

Here is what I am using:

HP tx2000
Broadcom BCM4322
Ubuntu 10.04
WICD 1.7.0
