Frequently Asked questions
- Why does the power button (hardware) do nothing? Will it send out keycodes or some other events in the future?
- It does send a keycode
- How do you change the backlight brightness from a program (rather than the keyboard buttons)?
- See DCON
- How is the brightness level being changed? Some embedded EC? OF? Do we get a userspace signal/event when the user changes it?
- See DCON
- DPMS seems not to work. "sleep 1 && xset dpms force off" does nothing.
- DPMS needs to be taught how to work with the DCON
- Where are per-session settings meant to be stored? GConf? How much configuration should there be allowed?
- Stable Suspend to RAM (Stable means: pass 1000 consecutive suspend/resume cycles without a glitch)
