just Curious - Printer Icon indicates loss of network

Post by AZgl1500 »

my laptop with 19.3 Cinnamon does something that I have NOT noticed before with any version of Mint.

Was I asleep all these years, or what?

When the laptop's lid is closed, it shuts down the network among other things.
I have all of the Power features set to "NEVER" so suspend, hibernate, sleep are never invoked.

when the lid is opened, it takes a few seconds for the network to get the kinks out of its' muscles and start working again. During this brief period, the printer's icon shows an Error Alarm, which goes away quickly.
