Thread: Updated. Suspend now intermittent.

    Default Updated. Suspend now intermittent.

    My system used to suspend to RAM after 15 minutes (as set in my KDE
    desktop power settings).

    I did a large update in the week and now the suspending seems to be
    intermittent. Sometimes it suspends, sometimes it just goes to monitor
    powersave mode.

    I have two users logged in to KDE desktop sessions.

    How do I troubleshoot such a thing?

    While the box was on and should have suspended, I sshed into it and
    ran pm-suspend.

    It turns out root is able to suspend the box fine using
    # pm-suspend
    so I think it is a permissions issue, rather than an application
    stopping suspend from working.

    I've made some progress, but still need help?

    I've narrowed the issue down to having two users logged into KDE
    simultanously.

    When I run with just one graphical login, suspending works fine, for
    either user. When I run two simultanous graphical logins, when one
    tries to suspend, a dialog appears on the other's screen.

    e.g., When user Toby's desktop is idle for 1 minute, the screen blanks,
    but the computer does not suspend. Instead, a dialog appears on user B's
    desktop saying:
    "Authentication is required to suspendo the system"

    This is a PolicyKit dialog, the text comes from
    /usr/share/polkit-1/actions/org.freedesktop.upower.policy
    which reads as follows: http://pastebin.com/eVPZUNzZ

    However, if Toby opens a Konsole window and runs
    sudo /usr/sbin/pm-suspend
    then the system does suspend. This makes me think it's a KDE issue?

    N.b.:
    I've been setting power settings using KDE's "Power Profiles" control
    module.
    I adjusted org.freedesktop.upower.policy to "Allow" using KDE's "Actions
    Policy" control module.

    Well, that makes sense.

    The administrator can force the issue. Kde is more or less doing the
    correct thing.

    On the advice of the KDE System Settings and Device Actions KCM maintainer
    I've filed a bug:
