:I'm the translator of the italian arch wiki community of this page. And i'd really like to remove this section and slim down this wiki page.
 
 
 
:Still, in "tips and tricks", i guess the first tip, about hdparm, should be removed. Instead should be added under the systemd-sleep wiki (as i already said, upower won't :use pm-utils to suspend, therefore it won't be executed anymore on 99% of users laptops.)

:::What do you mean by "it's still used there" ? You linked systemd acpi control. That relies only on systemd, not pm-utils. [[User:Nierro|Nierro]] ([[User talk:Nierro|talk]]) 14:49, 10 July 2013 (UTC)

The script says ""/usr/bin/slimlock" & # or any other such as /usr/bin/xscreensaver-command -lock"
Are you sure you have /usr/bin/slimlock properly installed? What does it say when run manually? Rava (talk) 09:57, 19 October 2015 (UTC)
