    Disable suspend when on AC

    I used to connect to my laptop remotely that's why need to keep it always on, but XFCE power manager doesn't provide an option to disable suspend when laptop AC powered, only offers maximum 5 hours 50 mins

    My system is Lubuntu 12.10, on laptop Asus U36SD

    Re: Disable suspend when on AC

    that's a good question for Ubuntu developers. Have you tried this command in terminal?

    sudo apt-get install ubuntu-tweak.

    Now look again if the suspend option is there does hibernate work just as well?

    Yeah, i know this tool long time ago used it on Ubuntu.
    I'm not sure if i'm doing right because ubuntu-tweak is going to suck compiz alongside.
    Will Lubuntu feel good after that ?

    Do you want to continue [Y/n]?
    As to the hibernate - I'm not using it because it waste my SSD space.
    Hope you know that in order to use hibernate need to allocate swap space same amount as RAM. My SSD is 128 GB and i have 8 Gb RAM so i don't want to keep 8 GB swap just for hibernate. Anyway U36SD so fast that almost no deference between hibernate and suspend, SSD makes his job very well.
