Enlightenment (E17) power saving difficulty
At the moment, the one thing that is stopping me feeling comfortable with E17 is a difficulty getting power saving working as I would like.

Screen blanking fine, but I can't get any sign of suspend to ram or suspend to disk, which is a bit of a disadvantage, if you've got used to relying on one of them.

So, is there any way of getting one of the 'suspend to..'s working automatically on idle or, even better, on laptop lid closed, or even a manual way of getting it to happen?

Don't know about SuSe, but the following commands are part of the uswsusp package in Debian:


You can then tie either of these to acpi events. Again I don't know about SuSE, but in Debian I would set that up with the scripts in /etc/acpi

Debian has acpid, acpi, and acpi-support which does what you want. E17 can be configured to use those right out of the box but the only thing left to worry about is suspending when idle. That's solved by installing sleepd and configuring it to use the acpi scripts provided by acpi and acpi-support. I'm not familiar with rpm based distros so can't really help you there. But perhaps SUSE has something similar?

Good Luck
