neddie Posted June 11, 2009 Report Share Posted June 11, 2009 I'm trying out 2009.0 live on a borrowed Thinkpad T41p, and it seemed to be working fine. I wanted to try out Skyping with two-way video to see if it's just my laptop which can't do it or if it's a general problem. So I got as far as installing Skype, disabling pulseaudio, testing the webcam, and making the test call, but then I left it alone for a few minutes and it went to sleep. I've tried the Function - F4 (with the moon symbol), I've tried Ctrl-Alt-F1 to F7, I've tried Ctrl-Alt-Backspace and Escape and Fn and Ctrl-Escape and everything else I can think of, even shutting the lid and opening, pulling the power out and back in, tapping (but not holding) the power button. It reacts, making a noise when I unplug the power and adjusting the screen backlight for the function keys for brightness, but I can't get it to wake up. Any clues? Or is the only option forcing a reboot with the power button? Assuming I do have to reboot it, is there a way to stop it going into this sleep mode if I know it won't be able to wake up again?
