I've neither suspend to ram nor to disk in 12.10 lubuntu (i suspect there might be a kernel issue but i'm only a simple user). Also, the xfce powermanagement which comes with lubuntu by default does not have any effect. Even it doesn't lock the screen when i set this in the preferences: What do when close the lid.
So, on a portable that's annoying a lot. Is there some way to workaround by scripts in
Searching around i found something interesting in my syslog:
laptop-mode: Warning: Configuration file /etc/laptop-mode/conf.d/board-specific/*.conf is not readable, skipping.
laptop-mode: enabled, not active
The "incriminated" directory
/board.specific/, in my computer does simply not exist! Now, i don't seem to be the only one affected by this problem. There is something like a bug filing against this in Debian. May be, someone knows how to overcome this problem?
