[EN] xfce suspend mode problem
« on: 2012/01/05, 04:07:47 »
The only misbehavior I have noticed on my 11.1 xfce rc (dist-upgraded) is the "suspend" mode.  When I select it from the "action" button/logout window on the panel, often it will suspend but immediately wake up again without being asked. If I repeat the selection immediately it will generally suspend properly until I press the start button again. Not a deal-breaker but vexing when in a hurry.

I am not sure if this occurs if pm-suspend is invoked from the CLI.  This does not occur on my other linux partition, a squeeze-xfce distro. I will try to use the CLI version for a bit to see if it happens there as well.

Edit:  It happens with the CLI as well...just did it.

policykit-1 is already the newest version.
policykit-1 set to manually installed.

As I did not previously install it knowingly, you must not have forgotten it :?   All I have done to the original 11.1 rc to date was to do a dist-upgrade and add "at".
