Description David Monniaux 2006-11-24 15:54:49 EST
Description of problem:
Laptop ACPI suspend does not work under KDE - KDE does not process the 'suspend'
ACPI event, while gnome has a daemon processing it. There's no 'suspend' script
in /etc/acpi/events

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start a KDE session
2. do whatever key combination the laptop uses to produce a suspend ACPI event
Actual results:

Expected results:
should hibernate or suspend the machine

Additional info:
gnome has a daemon processing suspend events. KDE does not, at least in my

Possible fix:
$ cat /etc/acpi/events/sleep.conf
Comment 1 David Zeuthen 2006-11-25 15:36:27 EST
Probably something you should talk to Fedora KDE people about, not something
that is an issue with HAL. For the record,

 1. I think SUSE and other distros are using kpowersave, but unsure, I don't use
KDE, sorry
 2. gnome-power-manager should work just fine under KDE
