Powersave setup

I cant seem to find any proper documentation on the Powersave package.

When I type powersave -U, I hear a beep, an then nothing.

I have resume in grub, and as a hook.

Any tips on how to set it up?

Re: Powersave setup

The messages.log says.

Mar 25 09:20:31 ArchThinkpad powersave-do_x_notification[5699]: INFO: Parameters: Event - The resume partition is not set up. Probably you need to add a 'resume=...' option to your kernel command line and reboot. Suspend to disk and resume is not possible without a resume partition, please consult the documentation. You can skip this check by setting SUSPEND2DISK_SKIP_RESUME_CHECK to 'yes' in the sleep configuration file.; Current Active Scheme:  - ACPI event line:

Witch documentation is this? The webpage that I have linked to above, does not explain anything about the 'resume' option. Neither does the README files.
Can someone explain how to use swapspace or a normal partition as resume partition?

I really need help to get this to work.

Re: Powersave setup

I do not know anything about powersave documentation. However, powersave, from the point of view of suspension, is just ome among many scripts (if you want my advice, the best one is hibernate-script from the suspend2 project, useful also for suspension to ram and vanilla suspension to disk) which calls the kernel suspension capabilities. In general, the linux kernel needs the resume boot parameter: this is surely documented in the kernel docs.

If you use grub, the resume parameter should be in the kernel line. Let us suppose that your swap partition is /dev/sda2: then add this to the kernel line in /boot/grub/menu.lst:

resume=/dev/sda2

This should work both with suspend2 and vanilla suspend.

Re: Powersave setup

Thanks.

I have the resume boot parameter in grub, but I still get the message in Message.log. I did not know that this was a kernel capabillity, so I did not think of looking in the kernel documentation.

I will have a look at the hibernate-script.

Thanks again for the help.

Re: Powersave setup

I finally got Powersave working. I did not change to hibernate-script because it seems lik it needs a patched kernel. Powersave does not.

The problem was that I had a ':' in the resume boot parameter.

Just for refrence, since there is not much information about this error on the net.
When I tryed to invoke powersave, i had the following error:

Event - Swap partition '8:9' is not available, cannot suspend to disk.

Do a

# dmesg | grep swap

If there is no swap partion, for some reason, mine was not mounted,
you can do a

mkswap /dev/sdXX

, where XX is the disk and partition, and reboot. Do not do this if you have a mounted swap partition.

Re: Powersave setup

If it works, do not change: but for the sake of exactness the hibernate-script does not require a patched kernel: it is developed by the suspend2 team, which develops also a patchset (which is included in arch kernels kernel26suspend2 and kernel26beyond), but it works also with the vanilla, unpatched kernel.
