[SOLVED} update borked "suspend" settings - system unusable.

Postby Jethro_UK » 2020-08-02 14:28

After yesterdays update to Linux 4.19.0-10-amd64 on x86_64 via the repositorys my system has become unusable.

Whatever has been fixed has broken the "Do not suspend" instructions and I cannot seem to disable suspend.

I have tried:

Code: Select all
dconf write /org/gnome/settings-daemon/plugins/power:sleep-inactive-ac-type "nothing"


and

Code: Select all
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.session idle-delay 0


which are seemingly being both being honoured. But 20 minutes later ... winking blue power light and the system is suspending.

Running GNOME on a headless system if that is of any use to anyone.

Don't suggest I use the GUI "Tweaks" as mine is missing a truck load of settings for reasons no one has ever explained.

How about
Code: Select all
gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power sleep-inactive-ac-timeout 0

Erm, what? How does that make any sense? :?

The GNOME developers don't want you ruining their beautiful UI. Try dconf-editor instead.
