oops, yes, i should have be more detailed. sorry!
FC5 is on my desktop pc : AMD Athlon XP on Asus A7V600 board, GeForce4MX video, Samsung Syncmaster LCD monitor
When i click 'suspend' the monitor goes blank, but quite by accident i realised that the pc switched itself off after some time, apparently when i did not return soon enough. that's great, since it means i can effectively tell linux to shut down and when i come back the next day the pc can power back up and resume exactly where i had left off. i won't have to remember where i was or what i was doing.
laziness defined, right?
anyway, i want to know how i can change the default timer controlling 'suspend' so linux will suspend and shut down immediately.
is that possible?
