View Full Version : [ubuntu] My X61 doesn't sleep automatically

June 7th, 2009, 08:27 PM
Am running 9.04 on my Thinkpad X61. I am able to place the system into "Suspend" and "Hibernate" from the menu, but the system appears to be ignoring my preferences in the Power Management applet.

I just did an experiment and set the preferences to put the machine to sleep after 11 minutes when on AC. It also says to put the the display to sleep after 15 minutes.

After 11 minutes, the machine didn't go to sleep. After 15 minutes the display did go to sleep.

The only active application was a browser.

I likely have some process running that is somehow is keeping the machine from believing it's idle.

Any recommendations on how to troubleshoot this?
