Hibernate Features - Simple?


Slackers, Good Evening!

At first, it is a simple question. I 've never used suspend or hibernate features before and now I am using a robust slack14_64 and I think its marvellous.

Then, in case someone have used Slack 13.37 and kde 3.5... Does kde3.5 has a graphical control to hibernate/suspend after spare XXXX time like slack 14?

I have used kde's hibernate features, works just fine... if you have lilo configured to boot properly coming back.

http://docs.slackware.com/howtos:sla...in:hibernation

The only part of that how to I needed was the lilo configuration... you hibernate, and then select the resume boot option from the lilo menu on boot... it's up to you whether you set that as default or not tho.

My exp has been tho, at least on this laptop, it wasn't worth it.. some of the wifi cards don't like being resumed from that state.

Thanks, my dear!

Hibernation is functioning on my system if I use command line. But , I am looking for a way to get pm-hibernation to run after an idle time. Then a script using sleep, xlock or xautolock could be a solution.

Good Morning!!

In fact, I had a luck and after read a lot forum was possible controller idle time to hibernate.

It is functioning in a xautolock controlling and I used a small script in /.kde/Autostart. I saw possibility using keyboard, mouse or screen saver activity. But I don't know a way to get this information and linked it in a hibernate action. "W" is an interesting function for it too.

Then on my system, Slackware 13.37 and kde3.5.10.

#!/bin/bash
xautolock -time 10 -locker 'dbus-send --system --print-reply --dest="org.freedesk
top.Hal" \
/org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/computer org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.SystemPowerMana
gement.Hibernate'


Commands are explained here!
http://linux.die.net/man/1/xautolock

http://docs.slackware.com/howtos:sla...on#hibernating

I used slack 14 during a test and I think pm-utils can be also setting to control idle timer unless graphical app. Maybe sleep.d, lid or events.... Can anyone to explain it for a konsole used ?
