Re: Screens never sleep, only screensaver lock

After more digging on this, it turns out the browser based Yahoo mail advanced client is the culprit. The basic browser client seems to be fine. Apparently the advanced client makes Chrome think it is uploading or downloading something all the time so powersaver options never get looked at. Interest...

Re: Cinnamon 3.0.7 screensaver occasionally doesn't work

I suspect the power saver does not kick in when Chrome (or maybe Chromium) is running. That what may system is doing. Have not found a good workaround, other than use Firefox.

Re: Screens never sleep, only screensaver lock

I have a similar problem with my desktop monitors. Power management is set to turn off screen after 5 minutes of inactivity. This setting works except for when the Chrome browser is running. Firefox will not cause the screens to stay on. There may be other programs as well as Chrome (probably Chromi...

Re: USB wifi device causes discover loop and kernel panic

I have an update on this issue. I plugged the device into my Raspberry Pi which runs Debian Wheezy (3.2 kernel) and it works like a charm :D . It looks like the problem was introduced sometime between kernel 3.3 and 3.13. The drivers for the device look the same as the ones that get loaded in kernel...

USB wifi device causes discover loop and kernel panic

When I plug a Bolse external wifi adapter with RT3072 chipset into my Rebecca desktop, Mint seems to go into a discover loop for a few minutes then causes a kernel panic. The device is supposed to be supported since about kernel 2.6 but I see lots of others with problems with this chipset in both Mi...

Re: Copy to USB devices slow and problematic

I am having the same issue. There is a long pause (~40-90 sec) at the end of each file copied.

I am running Isadora / Lucid Lynx 64 bit with current updates on a quad core 8GB system.

Copies eventually finish OK - its just annoying.

Any ideas would be appreciated.
