Hello,

I wanted to add the -h, or the -P flag to shutdown that appears in the /sys/power/disk file, which is called by the ACPI hibernate.sh script. I tried using sudo pico to edit the file, but I got an "Error: Invalid Argument" error when I tried to write the modified file.

The file currently consists of one line:


shutdown

I'd like to try to change it to


shutdown -h

or


shutdown -P

What am I missing?

Thanks,
- CH

Show the command and output exactly as it is on the screen.

hmmm

okay, I'm trying to fix hibernate function on my laptop.

During the hibernate process, ACPI executes the hibernate.sh script. The last four lines of the script are:


echo -n $HIBERNATE_MODE >/sys/power/disk
echo -n "disk" >/sys/power/state

$LAPTOP_MODE stop

. /etc/acpi/resume.sh

BUT the machine goes all the way down but doesn't poweroff. I'd like to try to tell the system to power off at shutdown (which is called by /sys/power/disk) by using a flag.

Change this line of the script:

echo -n $HIBERNATE_MODE >/sys/power/disk

to this:

echo -n "$HIBERNATE_MODE -h" >/sys/power/disk

or

echo -n "$HIBERNATE_MODE -p" >/sys/power/disk

as you desire.
