I have a (seemingly rather exotic) Dell Latitude XT2 notebook running Lubuntu 12.04, fresh install.
Tried to get the power button to work as expected (opening lubuntu-logout, just as I think it was meant to be out-of-the box), but no success: power button does nothing but forced power-off on long press.
Here some more information, please ask if something more could help:
I have a Compaq(HP) laptop. I connect it directly to the main power source without the battery, since my battery does not hold charge. I notice that on switching on the power button, the laptop starts booting with the power led on. Then it stops, on its own restarts. This time with the power led off but the boot sequence completes.
While switched on, the power led is still off.
On my laptop (Acer C720P) the power button is a regular keyboard key that I accidentally press all the time. This shuts down my computer instantly. Following somebody's advice, I disabled the power key using logind.conf. Now the power key is completely ignored which means it is more inconvenient to shut down my computer.
Ubuntu is working very well on this laptop with the exception of the suspend function. The laptop will suspend and come out of suspend without a problem if it does not sleep too long. When I leave the laptop in suspend overnight however, the laptop light will blink like it was in suspend but will not wakeup pressing keys or by pressing the power button lightly.
I have Sony vaio fit laptop.
This problem is arised a few days back. Laptop is turning on only on 2nd power button press.
When powerbutton is pressed for the first time, the vaio starting logo is shown and laptop turns off.
By the next power button hit, it starts normaly. But a bit slow than usual booting. I dont know whats going on. Please help me.
My power button is broken but I'm not sure it's the power button because I somewhat opened it there is a stripped screw so the volume side doesn't come off. When i put a battery in it turns on automatically and i even removed the power button from the motherboard little power button & tried pressing that power button
Somehow I broked up my Samsung GT I9000 Power button (So I can't power it on)
I powered it on using PC ADB command and I remapped the Home to be a power button (long pressing Home shows me Power Options and single press will block the phone)
Now...is there a way to foll the phone to power up using another button than that power button that is broken?
I have a 5 year old acer laptop, it was working fine untill about a week ago. The problem is that once its connected to power it takes 2-3 mins for the battery light to power and for a weird reason while thats off the power button doesn't work.
