Thumbs down Standby Mode


My system(RedHat Linux AS3) is going to standby mode in every 15 mnt. How can I avoid this?

My guess is that the standby comes from a BIOS setting. That's what was happening with one of my hard drives, and it ended up messing up my display. Setting the hard drive in the BIOS to not go to standby solved that problem.

So I would suggest checking your BIOS power-management settings. If you haven't done any BIOS setting before, it's not hard; you can always undo the settings if they're wrong. A message should come on the screen when you first start to boot telling you how to enter the BIOS setting mode by pressing a certain key (varies on different motherboards).

If that turns out not to be the problem, you might be able to use something like KDE's numerous control functions to change the setting.

I was assuming, maybe wrongly, that you had the KDE desktop installed on your system, or were very possibly using it, as to judge from posts here it seems to be the predominant choice of users who opt for desktop systems.

I don't use it myself, preferring a simpler window manager setup, but KDE desktop has menus that include many different applications for making adjustments to your system. It's a convenient way to approach the problem though lots of purists object that users will not gain knowledge of how their systems actually work, using graphic user interfaces and maintenance utilities of that sort.

My own feeling is that the majority of users use their computers for everyday tasks and whatever makes life easier for them, is a good thing. KDE falls in that category. We don't all have either the time or the desire to become experts.
