Hi rod_stone, try right clicking the battery icon then click on power manager settings and change Laptop Lid settings to Swtich off display under General settings. My Samsung laptop was doing the same thing you are describing.

What are you running Peppermint on? / Re: Lenovo X1 Carbon 2nd Gen
« Last post by Sgthawker on Today at 08:48:29 pm »
I can't convince my wife to let me install to her 3rd gen X1 Carbon. She is just "used" to windows and uses proprietary software as a professor at a college. I don't give up, but about 4 years worth and she is holding tight to her windows.  :(

You know - one of the things I really appreciate about Peppermint and getting support. People respond to questions! I, sadly, love distro hopping and looking at new things. This is the only forum, and the only distro I have found, where I get answers to my questions and not just pushed off and ignored! So Thanks folks, I truly apprreciate it.

It's our pleasure Darrel and it's great you feel at home here  - mission accomplished :).  Here at PeppermintOS, we want our users to feel comfortable and enjoy using their chosen system.  It's plain stupid to make things hard and awkward with vague and obtuse replies.  We think the best way to avoid chasing people away, is to providing working solutions in ways that are easy to understand and implement.  If we end up have a laugh in the process, that's a bonus  8)!  It's really that simple  ;D

When any of our users has a problem, or a question to ask.  We want them to use the Peppermint Forum and engage with our outstanding community.  This way we all learn something and it adds to the forum's knowledge base.  We don't distinguish between the gnarliest, long bearded, die hard Linux user and the greenest of green wet behind the ears newbie  ;D.  We're all Peppermint users and that's what matters  ;).

Edit.  You say you're a bit of a distro hopper.  If you haven't already done this, I think you'll find the following link very interesting: https://forum.peppermintos.com/index.php/topic,6756.msg68410.html#msg68410   It shows how to create a separate /DATA partition.  Instead of having all your critical data in your, /home partition/folder: Documents, Downloads, Music, Videos, Pictures etc.   You have them all in the separate /DATA, (or whatever you want to call it)) partition.  You create symlinks to these folders that makes them appear as if they're in your /home/<user> partition/folder.  This makes upgrading and sneaky distro hopping so easy, it's ridiculous  ;).  You can also multi-boot with different distros and /or Windows and share the data in your /DATA partition - cool eh  8)!

Hi rod_stone, have you tried swapping out the Xfce4 Power Manager for the Mate Power Manager?  I've found this resolves a lot of these nagging issues. 

Open a terminal window with the following keystrokes:

Ctrl+alt+t

Enter, (Copy & Paste) the following commands in sequence:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get remove --purge xfce4-power-manager
followed by:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install mate-power-manager
Navigate to:

menu > Peppermint Settings Panel > System > Startup and Default Applications

In the new LXSession configuration window, select: Core applications.  Scroll down to Power Manager and replace: xfce4-power-manager with, mate-power-manager.  Close the LXSession configuration and reboot your computer.  The Mate Power Manager icon will appear in the panel.   Right click on it and select Preferences.  Set up the manager to how you want it.  The Mate Power Manager isn't as full featured as the Xfce4 Power Manager.  However, I've found it works much better.  I hope this helps  ;).

No problem. Sites that have movies that were only just released in theaters aren't legit, as movies are usually released in theaters first, then streaming, then DVD and Blu-Ray. Popcorn Flix, on the other hand, is indeed a legit movie site. And, while it probably still has ads, they should be more family friendly.

Advanced Topics / Re: Finally got HTML5 H.264 working in Opera 54

Worked a treat on Opera  8)

Man, I didn't realize how many sites use H.264 - every site I normally visit, actually.

Guess I can purge Chromium now. It doesn't hold a candle to Opera anyway.

Wow! I had never thought about 123movies not being a legit site, so I went and did my due-diligence. I read where popcornflx is a legitimate movie site, and have now switched my movie watching to that. Thanks for "tweaking me" on to a proper source. I appreciate that!
