When screen turns off the laptop goes hibernate / sleep

Post by orudie » 2023/05/22 00:11:37

On my Dell laptop for some reason when my screen gets automatically turned off by the OS, it goes hibernate or sleep, and I can never recover it from that state by pressing any buttons.

I want to disable hibernate and sleep entirely!

I ran the command below which created a bunch of symlinks, but it didn't help. Right after the screen gets automatically turned off, my laptop enters hybernate or sleep.

systemctl mask sleep.target suspend.target hibernate.target hybrid-sleep.target

systemctl status sleep.target suspend.target hibernate.target hybrid-sleep.target
○ sleep.target
Loaded: masked (Reason: Unit sleep.target is masked.)
Active: inactive (dead)

○ suspend.target
Loaded: masked (Reason: Unit suspend.target is masked.)
Active: inactive (dead)

○ hibernate.target
Loaded: masked (Reason: Unit hibernate.target is masked.)
Active: inactive (dead)

○ hybrid-sleep.target
Loaded: masked (Reason: Unit hybrid-sleep.target is masked.)
Active: inactive (dead)


Ideas, suggestions?
Regards

You might also check in /var/log/messages to see if you can find out why the suspend/resume does not work.
The future appears to be RHEL or Debian. I think I'm going Debian.

CentOS 5 and 6 are deadest, do not use them.
