When I close my laptop's screen, and reopen it, everything is black. It only comes back when I press the poweroff button and then I can see the shutdown lines. I think I have read about this problem somewhere but can't find it.
What happens now when I reopen the screen is that no matter what key I hit I can not get it to powerup again. Unless, I press the poweroff key, in which case the computer shuts down...
But you can change it by right clicking on the little battery monitor in the lower right corner and selecting configure klaptop. Then selecting the last tab on acpi config. There is probably another way to do this with the command line but I am not sure I do not use such features.
Also note that acpi is not the best in linux at least IMHO
thanks - wonder why it is set up that way by default, seems annoying an useless.
none of the options in the APCI solve my problem; standby and suspend.
is this thread 'dead' yet? Heres is my scenario:
During the long subway rides I open my computer and code, but I am forced to close the laptop screen when changing trains. I then re-open the screen but everything is black. The computer is still running but no matter what key I press I cannot get it to show me my command prompts. When I press the poweroff button, I can see the status lines for when the system is shutting down.
You know there is an edit button that you can use instead of posting 3 times in a row..If no one has posted after you than use the edit button ..
It would help if the brand/model of the laptop was mentioned. While most use APCI, some (e.g. IBM/Lenovo ThinkPads) have their own power saving functions that have to have special controls (e.g. tpctl) which must be enabled to work with the screen switch's opened/closed state.
