How To Setup Debian Buster as a Server and A Desktop

Postby bcinteractive » 2019-10-18 05:14

Hi,

Since installing the new Debian Buster I have a problem with it 'shutting down' after an idle period. It wakes up after I click on the keyboard and I can continue where I left off after logging in.

I don't have this issue with the previous versions of Debian.

I use this computer as a desktop and at the same time a LAMP server.

What's the best way to re-configure this computer so I can serve webpages even if the desktop is idle.

This doesn't work: Settings -> Power -> Automatic Suspend: Off

Thanks,

BC

Energy wise using a desktop as server is not very friendly, in principle the system needs to be on (=costly.... .), not idle to react directly on approach from outside.

Consider a Raspberry Pi and install the server. Cheap, low energy consumption.

I'm running a VPN server on my Raspberry Pi .

Give it a thougth.

you could purge all packages dealing with powermanagement.

https://wiki.debian.org/Suspend
https://wiki.debian.org/Hibernation

This may help and depending on your OEM board and BIOS you may be able to disable hibernate from BIOS.

Are you still having issues with Debian Buster with autosuspend?
Sites that I find useful :

Ask Ubuntu

It's FOSS
