So does removing those 3 mean removing the three items from the directory?
Code:
sudo rm S99acpi-support
ect..

I'm not sure what you mean about the mains power. What is that?

Instead of using your laptop as the battery, take the battery out and use the ac adapter and plug ur laptop into the wall.

My only concern with that is, what about a power outage?

I would suggest changing the script names from

S99acpi-support
S99laptop-mode
S99ondemand

to

K99acpi-support
K99laptop-mode
K99ondemand

This name change will stop those scripts at run level 2, preferably you can do the same thing with chkconfig if you have installed it what is a safer method of doing this (e.g. chkconfig --levels 2345 laptop-mode off). I am not certain on if these scripts should be turnt off tho I am afraid, I haven't ever tried turning a laptop into a server.

However, personally I'd advise not using a laptop as a server, What is the particular needs that have led you into requiring an SSH and Apache server?

I renamed those 3 scripts (since chkconfig --levels 2345 laptop-mode off did not work). I rebooted the computer and I'll begin monitoring of the uptime to see if the problem has been resolved.

I am using Apache and SSH to host my own website. I chose to use a laptop because it's an older computer I no longer use, and I wanted to repurpose it.

Little more I can suggest I am afraid, suspend mode needs to be completely disabled and I have never had a reason to ever do that before... I would suggest should you be able to get this laptop working you check that it infact does not over-heat. I can't imagine laptops liking being powered 24/7 and their cooling is not generally designed for that type of usage.

I don't think it overheats because when I ran Windows XP and Windows Server, I never had any overheating issues. Is there any way to check from the terminal in internal temperatures of the computer?

What is the best way to disable suspend mode? A google search showed me a few things people did and finally disabled suspend mode, but I would like to avoid the unnecessary steps if possible.

For the record, over the past 2 days I've noticed quite an improvement in the overall uptime of my server. It's drastically improved. I have to assume this must be due the changes in script levels. If anyone knows how to disable suspend mode, please don't hesitate to chime in. I hope disabling that will fix the few problems that are left.
