Unwanted action as power plugged in or out (hibernate, ...)


after an Upgrate via new installation my laptop makes strange things if I plug the power plug in or out.
After some trying it seems so me it were the same actions as I will ask him to do in Control Center>Power management in case I shut the display (“when laptop lid is closed”) (e. g.: “Blank screen”=display dark and locked ; ? “Hibernate”=Suspend to disk; …).

I have just updated from openSuse11.1 to 11.2 (Gnome)> 11.1 to 11.2 - Update or New Installation with intel 915 graphic? - openSUSE Forums.

I think the power management came from Gnome (?).: There is a “gnome-power-manager 2.28.2-1.1.1” from the openSuSE 11.2 (-0) Update repository installed.

Should I look for a version 2.28.3 and give it a try?
http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/sources/gnome-power-manager/2.28/gnome-power-manager-2.28.3.news says something that may match:

Version 2.28.3

Released: 2010-01-25
  • Bugfix:
  • Don’t rely on the cached value of the lid status, to properly fix the double
    suspend issue. Fixes #604362 (Chow Loong Jin)

Greeting pistzienfresser

My laptop is a Samsung X20 (SX20S) with Pentium M 1730 MHz and a Bord with intern intel graphic 915 (GM?).
SUSE LINUX Release 11.2
Kernel Linux (I think the one under 11.1 was pae?)
GNOME 2.28.2

Or should I update all Grome applications to GNOME 2.28.3?

GNOME bug Bug 604362](https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=604362) - “GPM suspends twice on lid close”
seems not to be quit the same:
In Ubuntu I find only https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-power-manager/+bug/492649

Is there an other power-save application in the openSuse repositories I can use?
Should I try to make a bug mention for openSUSE or/and GNOME?


I upgraded to gnome-power-manager 2.28.3-1.5 (i586)
from gnome-stable and gave this repository a lesser priority (115)
but left the rest at gnome 2.28.2.

At least this program version initiates no action when the power plug is pugged in (only when plugged out and change to battery power it does now make a black screen and log the screen).

Hope it all goes well with automatic updates and updates over the graphic YaST!:\


Just to let you know, I did read this, wouldn’t know what going wrong, I’m mainly on KDE4

I logged out as user1 with GNOME and logged in as user3 with KDE. In KDE only the screen gets a bit darker as I pulled the power plug out (without getting bright again as I pressed the default

Maybe I should install a power management tool that runs on both graphic displays or even at startup of linux before any login? Is there anything like that?

You “wouldn’t know” or did not know (English is not my native language).
Should I explain the problem better to you and other readers or do you only want me to feel more comfortable (knowing that I was not ignored)?

thanks to Knurpht for your posting
and greetings to all
