Confirming recent comments. It is restarting continuously now...

Guess you should report this to the upstream issues list (https://github.com/rickysarraf/laptop-mode-tools/issues). Here we just make package.

Downgrading to 1.67-1 seems to solve the issue for now, although it is obviously a workaround.

Note that another user is reporting problems with the update on the forums, and that user is also on a ThinkPad - although a different model. I have no idea whether this is of any significance or not.

The latest version of the package restarts every time I connect a USB device (a mouse) to my laptop. Moreover, the mouse doesn't work at all. Before rebooting, it worked for a short while. After rebooting, it does nothing.

For example the journal shows:

And then it all starts over. I'm not sure if this is an interaction between laptop-mode-tools and KDE or what.

I noticed that makepkg caused it to try (unsuccessfully) to restart acpid when building. However, I forced a rebuild after rebooting. I also removed the dangling acpid.socket left in /etc/systemd/system/sockets.target.wants.

But nothing seems to help.

I disowned the package. I don't use more, I can't to check. It has a new version.

Don't know where this discussion should have place, but:

Any cons for AUTOSUSPEND_USBTYPE_BLACKLIST="usbhid" to be added to /etc/laptop-mode/conf.d/usb-autosuspend.conf by default?

See https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=156424 for details.

I think python2 dependency can be removed.
The only place where I found 'python' in the source was in lmt-gui script, and it would be installed by python2-pyside when used.

lybin commented on 2015-05-02 18:32

python2-pyside (optional) – LMT GUI

stas_nobody commented on 2015-05-02 18:26

lmt-gui not work:
