Do you always: Completely discharge your battery before charging it again? Leave the battery in a dark, cool, dry space when you don't need it (like when working from office/home) Always fully charge your battery and only then remove the power cords? If the above is three times "no", then your battery is busted! If the above is three times "yes": is ...

I realize this is a super old post, but I found the REAL answer for this model. It's not Ubuntu, it's the Aspire. From the ubuntu bug registry: (link) It seems that is BIOS/UEFI bug, so there is no solution to fix it on 5560g if planning use efi. A user on TomsGuide confirms this is the case even when installing Windows: The problem is, that the ...

Whether you will see the splash screen or not is determined by the parameter GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX in /etc/default/grub. If the word "splash" occurs in the command line, then you will see a splash screen, otherwise you won't. But in neither case does it indicate a problem.

To can figure out what's happening (if it is a hardware of software issue), reboot and choose from grub menu the memtest entry, and see if your ram is healthy. If yes, boot in recovery mode, and see if the freezing occurs. If not, check the log file called /var/log/dmesg and /var/log/dmesg.0. If you have possibility, save it somewhere and share it with ...

Warning: Take your time reading this first sentence: Before typing the following keystroke, remember that Ctrl+Alt+F7 is your friend. This is the keystroke to type to get back to where you are right now. (probably your guest session) OK? Remember? Sure? OK! Now press Ctrl+Alt+F1 to go to TTY1, which is a full screen terminal (and only a terminal: no ...

Try turning off Light Locker. You can find it in Preferences > Light Locker Settings. Turn the "Enable light-locker" to Off. This may be what is turning off your screen after 10-15 minutes. Are you using a laptop or desktop? If you are using a laptop, please note that there are different settings for battery power or plugged-in. Also make sure in the ...

This is a configurable option in the XFCE Power Manager, which was installed by default in my relatively fresh Lubuntu 14.04.1 installation (a laptop). I found it at Preferences > Power Manager. If it's not installed already for you, you should be able to install it with sudo apt-get install xfce4-power-manager In "General Options", you'll want to select ...

This could be done using a PolKit policy, if you have admin privileges. Create a .pkla file in /etc/polkit-1/localauthority/50-local.d (say disable-shutdown.pkla), containing: [Disable Shutdown, etc.] Identity=unix-user:* ...

Please try this. It works in Ubuntu and may work in Lubuntu: Tap the power button then press the enter key. I'm always surprised when seasoned ubuntu users don't seem to know that this easy trick which can performed as swiftly as half a second shuts down the computer properly and fastest of all. Like I said, it might not work in Lubuntu but you can ...

You want cron, which is the age old unix daemon for running scheduled jobs. Gnome-schedule only runs in your gui session as you, and so won't be able to run commands with sudo since you aren't there to type the password. Insert a file in /etc/cron.d/ to schedule a job to be automatically run as root at specified times. To shutdown at 10:30 pm each ...

If I understand your comments correctly, you want the system to shut down after a specified time, possibly after boot, that's also possible. Basically, you're going to want to create a script to run shutdown -h -t <timeInSeconds> after the system turns on. The simplest way I can see to do this is an init script. Very simply put, place the command in ...

A cronjob seems to be the best way because you can specify different times for different days. On Gnome based systems you can just install GNOME Shedule Tasks (http://gnome-schedule.sourceforge.net/) by using sudo apt-get install gnome-schedule and then configure the cronjobs using the GUI otherwise you would have to use sudo crontab -e and then add the ...

Cron will work very well for this. Add the below line (with tweaks) to the end of /etc/crontab: 30 23 * * * root shutdown -h now At 23:30 (11:30 PM), the kiosk will shut down. No matter what user is logged in, the shutdown command runs as root. (If you don't want to use the global crontab, log in as root and use crontab -e. Use the same above syntax ...

I was able to duplicate this multiple times over multiple installations of Ubuntu 14.04 (64bit). The instruction at 0x690ddc25 (or similar) referenced memory at 0x00000008 (or similar).

Simply, the trouble maker is the file /home/user/.kde/share/config/ksmserverrc. Just remove it and reboot Kubuntu.
