Yet another opportunity for opportunistic suspend

The PowerNap project/package in Ubuntu provides exactly the kind of policy manager you're talking about. It was designed to be sort of a "screensaver for servers, except saving power instead of the screen", but it works just as well on desktop and laptops. I know LWN and its readers love to hate Ubuntu/Canonical/Launchpad, but in case you're curious, see: http://launchpad.net/powernap.

Cheers,
Dustin

wow, sorry you feel that way. I *know* it's not true for LWN, and I don't really think it's true for our readers either. There are some vocal critics without a doubt, but "love to hate" seems a bit over the top to me.

YMMV,

Okay, Jake, you're right -- my comment was inappropriate. I was in a bit of bad mood when I wrote that. My apologies.

Anyway, a friend linked me to this interesting article about opportunistic suspend and suggested that I link PowerNap in as a pertinent tool. I should have did just that and left the criticism to others. Sorry.

There is some commentary about that package and the dubious value of how good it actually is. Since we're not seeing enough inflammatory comments about Canonical/Ubuntu/Launchpad on the frontpage, I'll have to post a link here below:

( For the uninvited, large parts of the first paragraph was snark and sarcasm.)
