Description Peter Janakiev 2009-09-12 17:48:14 UTC
Description of problem:
gnome-inhibit-applet does not prevent suspend from taking place, even when it is activated

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.activate sleep inhibition by click on the applet
2. close the lid of the laptop
Actual results:
laptop suspends immediately

Expected results:
the suspend should have been inhibited

Additional info:
Same happens when the laptop is idle and reaches the time set in power preferences as suspend after time - it is suspended, regardless of the fact that the applet is set to inhibit this. It is very irritating also!

Comment 1 Bug Zapper 2010-04-28 10:19:35 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 11 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 11.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '11'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 11's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 11 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here:

This bug is also present in Fedora 13 (I don't know about 12).  The inhibit applet, which I use to temporarily inhibit automatic sleeping, no longer seems to perform that duty, meaning that if I wish to temporarily inhibit sleeping, I have to go to the power preferences and manually turn it off.

Comment 3 Bug Zapper 2010-06-28 14:37:27 UTC
Fedora 11 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-06-25. Fedora 11 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.

Comment 4 Kevin L. Mitchell 2010-06-28 15:14:23 UTC
Again I state--this bug is *also* present in Fedora 13 and should not be closed.
