    Keep Awake doesn't work with cloudready.

    6/24/17, I installed CloudReady on my HP Mini 1103.  Immediately ran into the sleep problem.  KEEP AWAKE installed with no trouble and at least the SUN mode works with the lid open.  Will experiment with the rest.  

    Next need to tackle getting my Brother wifi printer working with CloudReady.

  • Donald Schultz

    OK!!  Sunset works just fine.  The screen goes black.  A touch on the mousepad brings it back.  Perfect.  

  • Donald Schultz

    Sadly, Sunset and SUN both lock up when the lid is closed.  Both work fine with the lid open.  This is on my HP Mini 1103.  Best wishes for good performance with CloudReady on your machine.

    To my Experience it should sleep if closing the lid right? My LED blinks Orange

    You can disable sleep if closing the lid doing this:

    sudo su
    mount -o remount,rw /
    echo 0 > /usr/share/power_manager/use_lid
    restart powerd

    Reboot your computer, cross your fingers and close that lid m8.

    Will this anomaly ever be addressed by Neverware?. Its the reason Cloudready never made it past the first experimental unit in our church's computer lab several years ago. All other identical units wake from sleep just fine using windoze. Just upgraded from version 55 to version 66 to see if its fixed. Nah, same issue.

    Have you tried the in Settings->Device->Power ..... adjusting sleep & lid action the way you want it? Seems all the previous methods mentioned here are now moot since this is now addressed in the OS settings. Also the Keep Awake extension should be removed if installed.
