Ubuntu :: Prevent The Sleep State From Being Lost On Power Failure?

May 17, 2010

When I tell the computer to go to sleep and there is a power failure the sleep state is lost. Is there a way to prevent this? I already know about hibernate and I'm using it but sleep is faster and there is no complete loading of the computer (BIOS, Grub and so on) it just goes directly into the desktop. As far as I know the sleep state is done when everything is in RAM and the computer is turned off but the RAM sticks still receive power. Is this true?

P.S. Can this be done with hibernate and SSD drives? As far as I can tell from what I've read it will be the same but with no state loss. Is this true?

Ubuntu Servers :: Lost Months Of Data After Power Failure?

Nov 13, 2010

Running Ubuntu headless server 9.10 with a RAID 1 on ext3. After a power failure (UPS power button was hit accidentally), I logged into the system via ssh and found that I had lost all data since my last reboot, which was 4 months ago. It was as if I had a perfect snapshot of my machine from 4 months ago. Everything, database files, logs, all report as if the machine had been off for 4 months. Fortunately, I have quality backups of all my data so I am able to recover, but I have never had such a problem before and I cannot figure out what happened.

Ubuntu :: How To Prevent Sleep During Processing

Jun 19, 2011

If I set my Ubuntu 10.10 to sleep after an hour of inactivity, I can't leave Blender to render overnight. The processing that Blender is doing seems to be ignored, and the computer goes to sleep after an hour. How can I prevent this from happening? I don't want to set Sleep to Never, I would like the computer to sleep after Blender is done.

This is lenovo ideapad z510 laptop, with intel+nvidia GPU (nvidia Optimus). To use nvidia GPU I use bumblebee.

General :: Prevent Ubuntu From Putting Monitor To Sleep?

Ubuntu 10.04

Under Preferences > Power Management I have changed the settings to never put the computer to sleep and never to put the display to sleep.

My display still goes to sleep and I am prompted for my password when I leave the computer unattended.

I would like to be able to hit the "Lock Screen" app I added to the top panel to lock my screen, but otherwise I would like it to just stay on.

The machine seems to come back to life, but the screen stays black. I even tried Ctl-Alt-F1 with no response.

Fedora :: 14 - Overriding Power Management Preferences - Settings Are Set To Never Put The Monitor To Sleep

Nov 17, 2010

I have an odd problem since preupgrading from Fedora 12 to Fedora 14.

My power management settings are set to never put the monitor to sleep, yet after a certain amount of time, lo and behold, the Fedora box has gone blank and I have to enter my user information and password to get back to my gnome session.

In the power management preferences I have "never" selected for both putting the computer or display to sleep.

In the screensaver preferences "Lock Screen After" is *not* checked. (And if I click "advanced" I also note that "Power Management Enabled" is also *not* checked).

I'd just as soon not have to "log on" to this machine every time I'm away from it for a while.

Ubuntu :: Disk Corruption After Power Failure?

Jan 14, 2011

While using my computer the other day (I was sending an email) it suddenly turned off. I didn't get any low power warning, but I was running on battery and had my iphone charging from a USB port.

As I didn't think there was low battery, I just turned it back on again. As it was booting I saw the battery light flashing, indicating low power. I went to get the charger, but before I got it, mid boot-up it turned off again.

This seemingly damaged something hard-disk-wise.

Upon turning it on again it dropped into busy box with some message similar to this:

Quote:

No init fount. Try passing init= bootarg.

BusyBox v1.13.3 (Ubuntu 1:1.13.3-1ubuntu7) built in shell (ash) Enter 'help' for a list of build in commands

(initramfs)

That's not the actual message (copy pasted from another post) but the message is VERY similar to that.

If I "exit" busy box, I get a load of message about "kernel panic" before it freezes up.

I have booted a live USB (what I am using now). I thought since it wasn't cleanly unmounted, simply mounting and unmounting would do the trick. I was wrong.

Code:
ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo fdisk -l
Disk /dev/sda: 250.1 GB, 250059350016 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 30401 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

[Code].....

I had previously ran e2fsck (after checking it was unmounted) but it wouldn't run also because it was reporting that the device was already mounted, busy, or being exclusively used by a process.

I don't want to do any more for fear of causing further damage.

I am astounded that such damage can be caused so easily!

Ubuntu :: 10.10 Won't Boot After Main Power Failure

Feb 11, 2011

Running 10.10 After a main power failure I can't boot.

It says:
...........
[sdb] Attached SCSI removable disk
[sdc] Attached SCSI removable disk
[sdd] Attached SCSI removable disk
[sde] Attached SCSI removable disk
and stops.

I get a (initramfs) prompt and have no idea what to do with it.

Allready tried to install 10.10 again from a CD. But it also hangs immediately when it starts to install. The liveCD feature works OK and I can access the hard disk. I tried to update the initramfs with the liveCD but it says I can't write since I have only "read-only" access. But if I do "sudo nautilus" I have full access to the disk.

Ubuntu :: 10.04: File System Failure After Power Outage

Jun 8, 2010

I recently installed Lynx 10.04 amd64. Twice now, my entire file system has become unusable -- each time after a short power outage (2 seconds).

In the first setup, I had two primary partitions: 1) / that was ext4; 2) /home that was ext4.

In the second setup, I changed the /home to ext3.

Both times, after booting up following the power outage, I received a message saying that "serious errors" were found in /home. But, after several reboots, I was able to login and use the system. Then, some time later, I would started getting "Read Only" messages when trying to write to the file system.

fsck gave the following message: "/home terminated with status 4". I received numerous "I/O error" on sda messages.

My question: Is this vulnerability due to using ext4 or is it related more to something else in Lynx 10.04? Further, what can I do (other than buying a power backup device) to avoid my file system becoming unusable after a power outage?

Ubuntu :: After Power Failure Boots Into Blank Screen

Jun 23, 2010

I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit, which is installed to a second hard drive on my desktop. Earlier this afternoon, there were two 10 second power outages in my neighborhood. The first caused the system to restart with no effect, but after the second outage Ubuntu no longer boots properly. The problem is this: When I boot, I get to the grub screen. I have tried choosing four different options (the most recent kernel, a slightly older kernel, and the recovery mode of each). For each, kernel begins loading, but at a certain point the input to the monitor dries up, and after a few seconds the monitor enters standby mode. When I boot into recovery mood, the last message I see before the screen goes blank includes "udev starting version 151" followed by three lines that read "assuming [something that I can't read before the screen goes blank]." The computer itself remains on, but I have no way of knowing exactly what it is doing.

There seems to be no hardware damage as I can boat into Vista, and I can also boot into 10.04 from a USB. I've used fsck to check the partitions on my hard drive and the test came up clean for all of them. Since I only installed 10.04 a week ago, I could just copy the handful of useful files I have to my external drive and re-install, but I'd like to get some experience troubleshooting this problem. My first assumption is some kind of problem with the video drivers or GUI.

Ubuntu Networking :: Refresh Network After Power Failure On Laptop?

Apr 24, 2010

have Karmic Coala runing on an IBM thinkpad X.41. Works great. My home network is all ethernet so I have a router , CAT5 cable to laptop.A coupleof times I've had power outages The laptop carries on as it's on battery power. When the power comes back , the router restarts, it reconnects after a few minutes but the laptop doesn't reconnect to the network seamlessly. On some other Linux distro's I've had running /etc/init.d/network restart will refresh everything. On Ubuntu I have /etc/init.d/networks but running restart In the end I needed to reboot the laptop to get the network back on.Perhaps this is a power management issue with the laptop ethernet card i.e losing power powers down the card and it never comes back up properly.

Ubuntu Installation :: Power Failure During Kernel Update - How To Recover

Sep 12, 2010

I was updating the kernel and left the computer to let it do its business. There was power failure and I don't know if the update completed or if it was in the middle of it. Now if I start the computer, it freezes up at the login screen. I tried to recover from grub, by selecting "Ubuntu, with Linux 2.6.32-21-generic (recovery mode)". There were no prompts for input after this. The recovery screen is not updating anything after:

[2.348886] EXT4-fs (sda1): INFO: recovery required on readonly filesystem
[2.349015] EXT4-fs (sda1): write access will be enabled during recovery
[2.577641] EXT4-fs (sda1): recovery complete
[2.578072] EXT4-fs (sda1): mounted filesystem with ordered data mode
Begin: Running /scripts/local-bottom ...
Done.
Done.
Begin: Running /scripts/init-bottom ...
Done.

When I come out of that screen (ctrl-alt-del), the problem repeats.
