exittc with suspend support
« on: April 07, 2009, 07:34:43 AM »
At this time suspend is not included into exittc gui, so here you are:

Package contains stripped pre-compiled executable + fluid project + makefile.

If s2ram does not exist then simply it raises a warning popup and does not exit (anymore).

This has been in QA for sometime. What we have found is that suspend does not work on all machines. I didn't want an option listed that could cause a machine to hang and therefore lose data.

When you target a specific machine it is great. When your target is from the very old to the latest it can problematic.

I will take a look, others should too.

The s2ram options could be set by environment (cfr. the script) and exittc suggest to make the backup before suspend the machine: it would be useful also if the battery discharge completely during the suspend time.  ;)

it would be useful as an option... i'd be pretty angry if the distro i used started guessing things like that. so long as it's all off unless you opt-in, okay.

I just use:

echo -n "mem" > /sys/power/state

I don't know if that works for all machines.

Yes, it is an option like in "reboot" and "shutdown".

I will use it if s2ram is not  present on the system, but s2ram has more options.

I does not work for me:

Code: [Select]
tc@box:~/$ sudo echo -n "mem" > /sys/power/state
sh: can't create /sys/power/state: Permission denied
tc@box:~/$ cat /sys/power/state
standby mem disk

Your redirect does not have root privs (ie use a root session)

Yes...you can place the suspend script in /root and run it from there.  (eg, sudo /root/suspend )

Thanks both, I prefer to change exitcheck.sh in that way:

Code: [Select]
  suspend )     
    if ! sudo s2ram $SUSPEND_OPTS; then
       sudo sh -c 'echo -n "mem"  > /sys/power/state'
    fi                                               
  ;;     

I have updated coherently this tarball
