Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

my laptop would automatically wake up when I'd close the lid after 1 second when it was connected to power. I fixed it with this script from this site

# File: "/etc/pm/sleep.d/20_custom-ehci_hcd".

case "${1}" in


     chvt 1
     chvt 7

This script is stored in /etc/pm/sleep.d/20_custom-ehci_hcd

I read this as if it is commanded to resume or thaw it will run chvt 1 then chvt 7. Why do those stop the resume, and why is this script required? I'm wondering what is wrong to cause the need for this script. Thank you!
