Problem with 19.1 Cinnamon monitor won't power off

I have a problem Cinnamon 19.1 every few weeks. Everything is working fine, even after updates, then for no apparent reason the screen will stay on for hours at a time even if set to go off in 10 minutes. I try a different setting, and reboot with no luck. To fix it I use TimeShift to roll it back, ...

Re: Suspend stopped working Cinnamon 19

My girl uses the machine to view FB and stay in touch with friends. On occasion they'll message her. Even after closing FB, but not logging out it must remain active. Not only the message feature, but if someone comments in a thread she posted in. I believe that is where the problem lies. So if you ...

Did you apply any kernel updates around the time when it stopped working?
No. Everything was working fine. I am doing more testing to see if Chromium and/or FB is the problem.

Re: Suspend stopped working Cinnamon 19

I think it might have something to do with Chromium and possibly Face Book running in the background. Logging out of Chromium and leaving the PC appears to allow the computer to enter SUSPEND.

Suspend stopped working Cinnamon 19

This is an HP 800G1 tower. Suspend works if I manually put the computer into it, however it will not enter suspend on its own. I have it set in power management to go into suspend after 45 minutes. It worked fine up until a day ago. I tried changing the time to an hour to no avail. I'm happy to repo...

Re: SOLVED Paste not working Cinnamon 19

In your output above it was mounted read-only. I don't use Windows but understand that Windows 10 can effectively 'lock' drives depending on how Windows is shut down so this issue may reoccur. Hopefully a more knowledgeable dual-booter will be able to advise on how to avoid this issue. Interesting,...

Re: Paste not working Cinnamon 19

Solution, I copied the data to another HDD. Then I re-formatted the drive to NTFS again. I used NTFS because I use this HDD to back up files created in Windows. I copied and pasted a few files to the problem drive and everything is working as it should. I am in the process of putting all the files b...

SOLVED Paste not working Cinnamon 19

This has me scratching my head. I did a clean install of Cinnamon 19 in an HP tower with 2 HDDs. I use the second HDD for back ups and to store music. I can open the drive and access files from it, however I can't copy and paste to the drive. I can copy and paste to a USB stick and the /home folder ...

Re: Swap file?

The computer will be used for business mostly. Documents created in Libre Office, emailing, and the Internet. I don't use Hibernate, I heard there were issues with earlier versions. If the bugs have been worked out I might try it. I guess I could play it safe and use 16GB in the event I should try H...

Re: Moving mouse of hitting a key won't wake PC again

Thanks a lot for your time and help! I might have to use a MSFT branded wireless keyboard and mouse with the PC in route. I have 2 PC's in close proximity of each other using Logitech wireless keyboards and mice. For some reason I found the keyboard and mouse will lag on the Linux system, on Win 10 ...
