View Full Version : [ubuntu] computer drops to low graphics mode after powersave

I have recently been experiencing some issues with the powersave on my computer. I had my computer set to put the display to sleep after 10 minutes and put the computer to sleep after 30 minutes. The screen saver also activates at 5 minutes. When I woke up my computer (hit the power button) the computer would sometimes tell me that it was going into low graphics mode. I had to reboot to get my x server back. I disabled the power save to fix the problem, but I would really like to have it back. My latest Xorg.log gives an error, but I'm not sure if the power save caused the problem (more below). I am running a computer with an Intel Integrated chipset.

My questions:

What caused the x server to crash?

Should I post a bug report on Launchpad? If so, how? (im a bit of a noob as far as bug reporting:???:)

How can I fix the problem?

Thanks so much!

Just had my computer crash on logout. could this mean a problem with gdm? i am attaching my messages log; it has some interesting messages about Invalid EDIDs.:confused:

Does anyone know where x server puts its error logs? I have 7 xorg.log's but they are all old.

Another thing- should I /how do I move this to general support?

Thanks again!

I am like extremely new to Linux and the terminal stuff in any operating system (just learned how to command line shut down :P Bad I know.)

I was told that you could put ubuntu on any system so I put the newest (Ubuntu Version 10.04 LTS) on my Dell Dimension 4700 series with an Intel 915G processor.

Worked fine until a while ago where I noticed that my display would go into sleep mode and then would not set the actual system into sleep mode. I moved the mouse to wake the display up and Low Graphics Mode came up. I looked at the log (because even though I have no clue what I am doing, I figured I could find something that went wrong) and the end showed the same thing here. So, I am stuck with the same problem you are having.

Like I said, I am a total newbie at all this, so don't mind me. I guess this is more common than anything. From what I see on launchpad, this happens with Fedora to a lot of people.

(sorry I couldn't help, but I wanted to follow this)

Welcome to the forums! ):P I am new to the forums but have been using linux for about a year and have had quite a few problems with graphics too.

Ont thing- have you tried running any 3d games? I found that there was one game that always crashed like the powersave when it was in full screen, so I think it might be a problem with OpenGL (basically open source Direct3D).

Also, are you running desktop effects? You can check by going to System > Preferences > Appearance > Visual Effects Tab. If Normal or extra are checked, then desktop effects are running. If the effects are running, try running this command in terminal:


sudo metacity --replaceNote: This turns off desktop effects, but for me it fixed the problem with the 3d games. I think the computer gets hung up when exiting from the screensaver, so, assuming that you are running an OpenGL screensaver (3D), this might help as a workaround.

If you want to turn desktop effects back on run this command:


sudo compiz --replaceYou may or may not need the sudo in front, it just tells the computer to run as root (administrator). I can't remember if you need it or not :tongue:

It might also help to know a little bit more about your system. To get more info, run this
command:


lspci >> lspci.txtThis will create a text file (lspci.txt) in your home folder that contains info on the system board and stuff connected to it.

Also, run this command to tell about your 3D acceleration capablilties. It will again create a text file.


glxinfo >> glxinfo.txtYou can then attach those text files to your next post to help with troubleshooting.

So, to sum it up, you might try running some fullscreen 3d games (cannon smash will probably run on your computer. its a ping-pong game) and see if it crashes. For me, it actually goes to a black screen with some text on it but I am pretty sure that the X server is crashing.

If you need help installing games, feel free to ask.

Hope this helps and best of luck to you!

Actually, I am having a similar problem, it's just fairly random in occurance. Some days, I will turn off the monitor when I leave the lab for the night and come back and all is well, but other times I'll leave the monitor on and get the X server crash after about half an hour.

When I go to restart the X server, however, is when things get bad. The system will hang up on "checking battery state." I'm on a desktop (Jetway Atom 330, 1GB ram) with power saving features turned off. I checked the .xsession-errors file and get the following:

Heh. Sorry I am not really helping the issue, but I did find something relevant to this similar crash that I got on my system.

I set the power save setting for my monitor so it does not go into standby mode after 30 minutes. Although, I did keep my system set to go into sleep mode after an hour or so.

I no longer see the "low graphics warning" and I did try putting graphic effects on again. Still no crash and I haven't shut the computer down in four days.

So, maybe this is the solution to my problem, sorry. But maybe this could help you in some strange and odd way...

Here is the summary of my 3D capabilities. This is on a Dell Inspiron 4700 Series with an Intel 915G card. (note: games ran fine when it was running Windows XP.)

***Just tested Cannon Smash. Ran great. Smooth graphics.***

I'm thinking there is a bug with the gnome-power-manager on powering down the monitor. What video chipset are you using?

My computer in question is running an Intel 945 video chipset.

btw, you might try running this and then do a reboot:


sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg

Fixed the problems with 3d for me.

I guess I should have mentioned, I am running desktop effects, but set at normal and not playing any 3D games. I primarily use this box for web browsing and MATLAB based data acquisition, so the problem is more of an annoyance than anything.

I looked through some of the bugs in launchpad (searched for intel 945), and most of the bugs listed seem to be related to compiz crashing and locking up the system. None of them reported the "low graphics mode" issue we seem to be facing.

Also, does anybody else's .xsession-errors log have anything similar to what I posted earlier (HAL or DBUS not working, proxy failed, etc)? It might be a clue as to where the problem is arising.

Just a thought- If you checked your x errors after rebooting, you may not have gotten the data on the x crash. I got a fatal error when I checked mine. Here is what I did:

1. Reproduce crash

2. When the low graphics mode choices come up, choose to exit to console login.

3. Login and immediately type the following command:


nano ./xsession-errorsIt might also be worth backing it up:


sudo cp ./xsession-errors ./<enter new file name here>Hope this helps!

So, I re-enabled the power saving mode for the monitor under the power preferences and got the crash again. Here's the tail-end of the xsession-errors file from after the crash:
