View Full Version : [ubuntu] Laptop power management?

April 14th, 2011, 02:50 AM
I have an Acer Aspire One netbook running Ubuntu 10.10 server with gdm and xbmc-standalone installed. I plan on using this netbook as a CarPC. I'm almost done with the setup, but I need some help/advice on power management. The netbook will be charged from the OEM charger and a power inverter. What I want to do is to have the laptop awake with AC power, and suspend/hibernate when the AC is off.
