2 Standby issues

I'm running Zorin OS Pro 16.1 and it's great, but I have 2 issues that I can't get resolved.

  1. I set the Suspend & Power Button to Power Off but the system always suspends when I press the sleep button
  2. When I wake the computer from suspend the logitech mouse scroll wheel doesn't scroll very much. I have to really spin the wheel to get a web page to scroll. If I reboot my computer the mouse scroll wheel operates normally

AMD Ryzen 5 3600
16 Gig RAM
nVidia GeForce 1070

All apps are updated/upgraded.

Can you try running in terminal:

sudo systemctl mask sleep.target suspend.target hibernate.target hybrid-sleep.target

This may be resolved by the above... :wink:

Thanks, for the response Aravision. I ran the code in the terminal and now the options for the power button are missing. Also, pressing the sleep button does nothing now.

How do I undo this:

sudo systemctl unmask sleep.target suspend.target hibernate.target hybrid-sleep.target

You might try

sudo nano /etc/default/acpi-support

arrow key down to Suspend-methods and set it as Suspend-methods=none
Tap ctrl+x, then the y key then the enter key.


sudo /etc/init.d/acpid restart

I tried the above. No difference.

But no worries, I'm about ready to re-install Zorin OS anyway.
