Edit log

LTM is one of my favorite packages and I hope we can clean up this empty entry and make it a lot more up to date.

I think it's a good idea to present most of the options in a explicative way, even though the different configuration files are so well commented.

Agreed. I also mean to do a troubleshooting section. A lot of the modules can be problematic, such as auto-hibernate w/o battery-polling and terminal/lcd blank on its own. Dres 17:29, 28 January 2010 (EST)

acpid and dbus

I'd like to see some more explanation of how all of these power management/laptop subsystems relate to each other. Do I need acpid now that udev and dbus exist? Will laptop mode tools talk to pm-suspend to initiate suspend on lid close? Or can this be signalled by dbus, or acpid? --VitaminJ 19:32, 5 February 2011 (EST)

I'm pretty sure you do need acpid, else the events aren't picked up. It seems there are some LM connected scripts in the /etc/acpi/ directories, but they don't really do much besides enabling/disabling LM. I guess that's up to the user to decide, but you could provide some suggestions on the wiki for these scripts.--Smartass 10:18, 20 March 2011 (EDT)

Laptop-mode-tools does not disable on AC

i think the command should be :

# touch /etc/pm/power.d/laptop-mode

because in /usr/lib/pm-utils/power.d/ there is a "laptop-mode" file

pm-utils version :1.4.1-5
