View Full Version : [gnome] "put to sleep" ‒ and then wake up again?

April 19th, 2011, 07:24 AM
Desktop chugging away with Ubuntu 10.04, sharing monitor, mouse and keyboard with another PC I need for one application I cannot do without. If I have both machines powered up, it's usually because I'm multitasking and switching between them: but every now and then the Ubuntu box just shuts down.
Today I finally looked at the settings, and noticed that "Put computer to sleep when inactive for 30 minutes". OK, I can live with that but once it has put itself to sleep, how should I wake it up? Or should I conclude that this is a dangerous option to use with a desktop and set it to "Never"?
Advice welcomed!
