How can I prevent and totally disable suspend in Ubuntu 17.10 ? My HP Elitebook totally freezes after suspend, so I want to remove it as a possibility.

Output from find:

sindre@saspire:~$ find /lib/systemd /etc/systemd -name "*sleep*.service"
sindre@saspire:~$ find /lib/systemd /etc/systemd -name "*hiber*.service"

You can disable it via systemd:

$ sudo systemctl disable hybrid-sleep

If you change your mind in the future you can enable it again:

$ sudo systemctl enable hybrid-sleep

More info:

man systemd-hybrid-sleep.service

  • Maybe they've changed the name in 17.10. Try to find it: find /lib/systemd /etc/systemd -name "*sleep*.service" or find /lib/systemd /etc/systemd -name "*hiber*.service" – Evgeniy Yanuk Oct 31 '17 at 22:14
  • I updated my question with output from find. How can I run it against the new name? – Solo Nov 1 '17 at 5:30

    Yes, the name is changed. Use this command: $ sudo systemctl disable systemd-hybrid-sleep – Evgeniy Yanuk Nov 1 '17 at 7:00
