Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

This program is used to enter a system sleep state until specified
This uses cross-platform Linux interfaces to enter a system sleep
state, and leave it no later than a specified time. It uses any RTC
framework driver that supports standard driver model wakeup flags.
This is normally used like the old apmsleep utility, to wake from a
suspend state like ACPI S1 (standby) or S3 (suspend-to-RAM). Most
platforms can implement those without analogues of BIOS, APM, or ACPI.
On some systems, this can also be used like nvram-wakeup, waking from
states like ACPI S4 (suspend to disk). Not all systems have persistent
media that are appropriate for such suspend modes.
Through BIOS I have ACPI enabled. I can choose for the suspend mode between:
- suspend to disk
- power on suspend (or something like that)
So it seems my bios does not suspend to ram
I have never succeeded to put my computer into sleep mode, or hibernate mode
My distro: Debian Lenny
When using rtcwake:
razer:/home/hurman# rtcwake -s 3700
rtcwake: wakeup from "suspend" using /dev/rtc0 at Thu Jan 7 11:15:58 2010
And than it does nothing... strangely enough the rtc wake time seems to be in GMT time, while, I am in +1 Amsterdam time. But it does nothing when I do this command.
The same for
It does absolutely nothing
Hibernate is available from the menu, but everytime I do it, it fails... (so it hibernates, but when I want to turn it on again, the first time I press the power button it does load, but not fully. The second time i do a hard reset and it works.
