I decided to use my Eee PC 1001HA as a home server. I have it connected through Wi-Fi to the router, running Ubuntu Server 12.04. Everything works fine except this annoying problem:
when I close the lid, the ssh server stops working and, I guess, wlan0 too.
Tried the BIOS and nothing, no option about the lid. My wlan0 is a RaLink RT3090.
ls -lrt /var/log between lid derivatives, but I can't understand those satanic logs. I can share them if needed.
pm-powersave.log seems to be updated between lid movements. So I guess I've to disable this "powersave" service. Can I do this? I don't mind if the server runs all day.
Remember that there is no UI, this is a netbook with a lid and its connected to the ac adapter.
edit: This is just a workaround but I am able to click the power-button and close the lid quickly. This way the server boots normally and connects to the wireless network automatically. (found here)
