I'm running default ubuntu 14.04 in combination with awesome WM 3.5.9. To enable proper suspend when I close my laptop lid I enable xfce4 after login through the following awesome command which makes xfce4-power-manager unresponsive:
when running "ps -ef | grep xfce4-power-manager" I get the following:
test 2277 2273 0 19:28 ? 00:00:00 xfce4-power-manager test 11842 2365 0 19:39 pts/0 00:00:00 grep --color=auto xfce4-power-manager
so xfce4-power-manager is running unresponsively. However if I change the awful execute to "--no-daemon" mode, it runs perfectly. But not running this sort of process in daemon mode doesn't seem like the proper sollution. Has anyone experienced this problem as well and knows a solution?
