View Full Version : Custom suspend utility: best practice in Maverick
November 27th, 2010, 08:40 PM
I'm running Maverick on a Portege 3500. Everything's great except suspend, which I cannot seem to make work except with "acpitool -s".
I'd like to modify the suspend scripts to use that utility. Is there a single suspend hook that I can override, or do I need to modify the button handlers directly?
Alternately, is there documentation somewhere explaining the architectural thinking behind the ACPI scripts?

Dear linux user,
replace the following file (symbolic link) with this script:
login as root:
mv /usr/sbin/pm-suspend /usr/sbin/pm-suspend.bak
and type in gedit:
save file and exit gedit
make /usr/sbin/pm-suspend executable
chmod +x /usr/sbin/pm-suspend
This works fine for me. Let me know if it does not work, kind regards, Otto Meijer

gksudo gedit /etc/acpi/sleep.sh
change "pm-suspend" to your command
there's also 1 for the button & lid if you use those.

Thanks Kerry, I spent a couple of hours playing with /etc/acpi/lid.sh and sleep.sh, but I could not prevent it from irretrievably disabling networking and switching to (blank) VT8 on resume.
Ultimately I gave up and went with Otto's hack. Replacing /usr/sbin/pm-suspend had exactly the desired effect, after I set SUSPEND_METHODS="pm-utils" in /etc/default-acpi-support.
Thank you both for your suggestions.
