Om2008.8 suspends while charging

Actually if illume is configured for suspending after some seconds of idle, it ignores if the phone is charging or not.
I figure that if a charger is plugged in, the suspension should be automatically disabled.

indeed - you may think that - but our kernel engineers thing definitely otherwise. as non suspending means charging will take longer as now you are give or take 50%+ of the power from usb (500ma) to just run an idle cpu etc. etc. and the system can charge faster off usb if it suspends. so as such - this isn't an improvement. its personal preference. i am not intending to actually address this (mostly as i haven't been asked to by om). you can argue it with the kernel devs :) but it should - if ever done, be an option, not a requirement to "not suspend" while plugged in.

Ok, this is true; btw my intention was asking an option like the one available in Qtopia (famebuffer version): different profiles when the phone is charging and when the phone is not charging.

For example, if you're working at your phone via ssh if it suddenly suspends you could lose some work... I'd prefer that when the phone is powered by usb it should only dim. This should be an option, of course!

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to community

i've added this to the TODO file in illume's svn tree. so mayaswell close this (it's more likely to get done if in that file than here as i know i am much more liable to just bring up the file for my todo list than go search through trac for tickets!) :) so i'll resolve as "community" as it's in illume's e.org svn source tree waiting to getting around to.... being done :)
