[SOLVED] Unable to change settings in power manager?


Hi

How can I set it so that the account can change the settings in power manager? They're all grey'd out and unchangable

And when I click on hibernate, it says suspend and hibernate are only supported through HAL, which is unavailable. I'm sure that hald is running.

My comp: eeepc 1215t

Thanks



Ok I just fixed it by adding to the power group..:P

I meant the output of $ groups as user, not as root.
