both machines completely shut down at night. Log my process out, crashing my editors and browsers. I even have BOINC running in background on both machines so they are never “idle” for very long.
Where oh where has the newest hidden power setting been placed?
I’m not sitting in my office at night, but it seems like someone created a shiny new “security” setting. If there is no user input from keyboard/mouse for N-hours it just kills off the login.
I’m a developer. I don’t log out. I leave browsers, editors, and terminals open with notes on where to start when I come back in. It even kills off Clementine (music player) that is in second workspace.
Not a full shutdown because my network drives are still connected when I log back in.
Please, somebody tell me where this new setting is hidden so I can fix it.
Not luxurious. I run BOINC when not using the machine for development to help cure cancer, HIV, COVID-19, and other diseases. Putting my device to sleep would mean more people die than necessary. I don’t know where you live, but in America many of us with good machines participate in BOINC or other research projects donating the “idle” time to make the world a better place.
It is most definitely not a lockscreen. The lockscreen has been busted on both Manjaro Cinnamon and XFCE for quite some time.
is your office closed and nobody else has access to it over night?
does the building where your office is located have a Save Energy feature ? (as many towns in the world use that) so the main power is off at certain hours over night, or if are cubicles they have occupancy sensors that turn off the power when there is nobody there …
I live on a farm in the middle of nowhere. I have one neighbor a 1/4 mile away and the next is over a mile. I built the building I use for my office over 20 years ago. It doesn’t have any energy saving power shut-off stuff installed because it didn’t exist then. No, I don’t have people randomly coming into my office building that I lock at night. I’m the only one who works here.
I did manage to fix this. I had to use Dconf Editor and some other forum pointed me to Gnome power settings that weren’t available from the UI. I forget which ones. Once I changed them the shutdown problem went away.
Will put a task on my todo list to see if I can find which values. They weren’t obvious.
