Using Power Management

Power Key Problems

If pressing the power key does not suspend your system, refer to the following procedure.

To Respond When the Power Key Does Not Suspend the System
  1. Verify that the key processing daemon is present by typing this command:

    % ps -eaf | grep speckeysd

    If the resulting message does not list /usr/openwin/bin/speckeysd, you will need to start the key processing daemon.

  2. Start the key processing daemon (if necessary) by becoming superuser and entering this command:

    % /usr/openwin/bin/speckeysd
