=== brainwash_ is now known as brainwash
shallowhoundI have a very plain installation of Xubuntu 18.04, which I installed not too long ago and can't close any more without the screen turning off but the computer remaining on. This is the main behavior which I am asking about, but Ctrl+Alt+Del appears to repeat this behavior, and it also just happened without me doing anything just now.06:25
shallowhoundI cannot close the laptop, without it turning off, but not hibernating, or suspending, or shutting off. The screen is completely but appears to work every other way.06:28

Noboru55diogenes_ hello18:17
Noboru55diogenes_ i lost the txt i saved with that command you showed to me to do the usb works better18:17
Noboru55diogenes_ could you paste it again please?18:17
Noboru55diogenes_ when you see it. of course.. thank you18:20
diogenes_Noboru55, nano /etc/sysctl.conf add: vm.dirty_bytes = 1572864018:22
diogenes_sudo sysctl -p18:23
Noboru55i have no idea what happened here, twice when i insert a pendrive in one of my usb ports, all the system get crazy, all user folders get a lock and when restart i get errors on my hd.....  i will not use anymore that usb port... some things only happens to me18:23
Noboru55diogenes_ thank you !18:23
diogenes_i'm almost sure it's NTFS.18:25
Noboru55the pendrive?18:25
Noboru55it works in other usb ports18:25
Noboru55that one where i get this error, is the port where my scanner of printer works18:25
Noboru55in others it doesnt work18:26
Noboru55its weird18:26
diogenes_maybe one is 2.0 another 3.0.18:26
Noboru55let me explain, i have an usb port where when i plug the pendrive, i get a system error... but the usb pen works good in other all ports usb...18:27
Noboru55where i got the error is always in the same port...  i think its 3.018:27
Noboru55because the scan only works there to scan18:27
=== rubywarden is now known as rubenwardy
Noboru55but.. why it happens ?18:27
Noboru55anyway... i do not usee that port anymore... its almost a virus18:28
diogenes_only saint iGNUssius knows.18:28
Noboru55all folders get a lock... and if reboot u get error in file system partition18:28
Noboru55its ok now.. that usb port worked weird in windows too18:29
