Hibernate doesn't funtcion - mint 9 fluxbox

Postby daquirm » Sat Sep 11, 2010 4:29 am

Hello,

my problem is that Hibernate or Suspend doesn't function at all when choosing from the quit menu of fluxbox. But it does function when using hibernate script from the repository run as root from the CLI.

The Hibernate and Suspend features are very hardware dependent and don't work properly on all computer models. A detailed description of your system is required for help.

One possibility is to install powermanagement-interface. The other, without installing anything, is to modify file /etc/init/mint-fm2.conf as follows.

Code: Select all

if [ "$line" = "suspend" ]
then
        rm -rf $CIAODIR/*
#        pmi action sleep
        pm-suspend
fi

if [ "$line" = "hibernate" ]
then
        rm -rf $CIAODIR/*
#        pmi action hibernate
        pm-hibernate
fi
