gnome-power-manager hibernates computer instead of suspend

Bug #145456 reported by nynexman4464 on 2007-09-27
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
gnome-power-manager (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-power-manager

This is a problem that I just started having in the past few days. Whenever gnome-power-manager goes to put the computer to sleep, it actually hibernates instead of sleeping. What's worse is that when I turn the laptop back on and log back in, after a few seconds it goes to sleep! Suffice it to say this is rather annoying.

When I select suspend under the shutdown->quit menu, it suspends as normal, as well as when I press the Fn+F4 (sleep) combination on the keyboard.

This is again on an IBM T23 laptop running gutsy. I realize this isn't the first sleep/hibernate bug on this laptop, but I thought I'd report it since it seems to be a new/different issue that has only cropped up over the last few days (and updates, I presume).

I just noticed something peculiar. I tried setting it so it would sleep while on AC power, and got the opposite result! That is when the timeout happened, the computer went to sleep, and when I woke it up and logged back in, it hibernated. I will try to capture the dmesg log for each instance.

Yes, I would say that's the same exact bug. Sorry for the dupe.
