How to setup Antix for going to sleeping mode after closing the lid? it`s not working by default
I found Pm-utils, but it hard to understand, maybe some easiest way ? just need sleep mode or suspend

I see nobody else replied. Have you tried Gnome Power Manager or XFCE Power Manager? Both are in the repos. I would suggest investigating those to see if they have the control you are looking for. If so, I’d try one, and if it doesn’t work, uninstall it and try the other. After you install them you have to configure them. I’m not sure if a reboot would be needed or not.July 5, 2020 at 2:55 am #38546MemberXecure
You need acpi-support package and activate lid sleep.
sudo apt update && sudo apt install acpi-support
Then edit the /etc/default/acpi-support file with root privileges. Example:
sudo geany /etc/default/acpi-support
And search for the line #LID_SLEEP=true and uncomment it. It should look like:
You don’t even need to reboot to see this work. Close the lid.July 5, 2020 at 2:34 pm #38563ModeratorBobC
That’s better than my solution. The power managers use memory to keep running.
Question: Why isn’t that builtin to antiX? If it would cause problems for some machines, I guess not.July 5, 2020 at 3:34 pm #38566MemberXecure
Now it is only included in antix 19.x FULL, but I think it was also included in antiX 17 base. As packages grow in sze year by year, some things “have to go” to keep the 700MB size of the ISO.
That is one of the reasons anticapitalista is questioning keeping base “CD size”.July 5, 2020 at 4:34 pm #38568ModeratorBobC
I see. I can’t complain about that. Thanks for the responses.
