Every time I wake up my netbook with Ubuntu 11.10 after suspend, nautilus pops up to show me the contents of the SD card that is always plugged in just like I've just put it in. I set it to "do nothing" when an external storage device gets plugged in (which it obeys to) but it still pops up after suspend.

How do I disable this feature?

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.media-handling automount-open 'false' 

But this will also break automatically opening Nautilus when you insert removable media.

  • Thanks you so much! That did it and I'm fine with the side effect. Nautilus is just a click away when I need it. Now I can use my netbook immediately after it wakes up instead of having to wait till Nautilus is finished mucking about which slows down the system tremendously. Thanks again! – Chris Oct 10 '12 at 16:03
