I'm using the Simple Backup Suite (sbackup) tool to backup files from my laptop (Dell circa 2008 with Ubuntu 10.10) to another computer. The full backup takes quite a while. I have the power-management settings set to suspend after an hour and hibernate after two hours. I believe, but am not certain, that the power-management suspension and hibernation settings kick in even if backup program is still running, which of course terminates it. Am I imagining that? If not, is there a setting to ensure that the suspend and hibernate settings don't kick in while the backup program is running? Thanks.
