View Full Version : [SOLVED] Ubuntu 10.10 gnome-power-manager custom suspend/hibernation script.

Hello there.

My ASUS EEEPC 1201N netbook suffers from a strange bug which resets BIOS if the brightness isn't set to its maximum setting when rebooting.

What I need to achieve is to run the following command just before hibernation is initiated by gnome-power-manager:

/bin/echo -n 15 > /proc/acpi/video/IGPU/LCDD/brightnessUsing the solution proposed on http://translate.google.com/translate?js=n&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&layout=2&eotf=1&sl=auto&tl=en&u=http%3A%2F%2F1201n.podrozomania.info%2Fcategory% 2Fprogramy%2F (polish page translated by google. * Original link can be found at the bottom of this post.) works beautifully when shutting down, but is completely ignored when gnome-power-manager suspends or hibernates the machine.

All help is greatly appreciated.

# set brightness
# position /etc/pm/sleep.d/99_suspend

case "$1" in
/bin/echo -n 15 > /proc/acpi/video/IGPU/LCDD/brightness ;;
# do nothing

# end script

Make this executable and it should work,

Best regards,
