Powersave mode? All the computers I've dealt with don't awaken from "power save mode;" it's more like a coma. "Awakening" them requires a power cycle. On my laptop, this required removing the battery.

Needless to say, I've disabled "powersaving" for my computers. The monitors will still go into their powersaving modes, but the box with all the noisy bits stays awake.

My Windows boxes ignore mouse movements in powersave (Why? I don't know nor do I particularly care), so I bang on the space bar (it's big and hard to miss). My FreeBSD box does pay attention to the mouse, so I just waggle it wildly.

At that time [1909] the chief engineer was almost always the chief test pilot as well. That had the fortunate result of eliminating poor engineering early in aviation.

—Igor Sikorsky, reported in AOPA Pilot magazine February 2003.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
