Description Ajit C Pilai 2009-06-11 20:13:03 UTC
Description of problem:
After installing xfce4-power-manager, the brightness control on my laptop (FN + F6/F7) correctly changed the brightness of the computer screen, however, they also hibernated the computer. I have disabled the "put computer to hibernate when the hibernate button is pressed" and have looked through various settings for some kind of conflict but can't find it.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 11 XFCE4

How reproducible:
Everytime

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Press FN + F6 or FN + F7
2.
3.
  
Actual results:
Brightness decreases/increases correctly and computer then hibernates

Expected results:
Brightness decreases/increases correctly

What Laptop are you using and what version of xfce4-power-manager. I guess you are talking about xfce4-power-manager-0.8.0-0.3.RC1.fc11.x86_64, right?

Please try the latest packages from 
http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=105486 if they still show the same problem. If so, start the power-manager from a terminal with the "--no-daemon" parameter, press the buttons and post the output here. Use an attachment if it is too much.

This update fixes an identical issue on the Acer Aspire One.

Comment 4 Christoph Wickert 2009-06-13 13:31:03 UTC
That was my hope because upstream's ChangeLog mentiones:
"Don't accept any event for non mapped buttons".

Thanks for your report Lesley. How about the you Ajit?

Comment 5 Ajit C Pilai 2009-06-13 16:34:07 UTC
I'm having trouble installing it. I'm running xfce4-power-manager-0.8.0-0.2.beta1.fc11 and it claims it is the newest version.

Comment 6 Christoph Wickert 2009-06-13 16:47:25 UTC
