When left idle, Endeavour shuts down and have to unplug computer to restart/

It won’t restart without a reboot and unplugging the computer/ That’s a first for me. I think I asked for no hibernate but maybe not.

Never do that, you’ll just mess up your filesystem.

Enable the Magic SysRQ key and use that to restart the computer.

Regarding your original issue, check that your swap file or partition is large enough to hold the entire contents of RAM, plus more (if your system is swapping a lot). That is necessary for your system to be able to hibernate.

If you don’t want your computer to hibernate, then disable it.

Can you post the specs? Cuz it sounds like your PC does not wake up from sleep/hibernate

This happens with multiple arch based destros. Magic SysRq Key, gee I wish that would work.

How do you disable hibernate. I’ve had a hard time putting arch backed distros on hard drives , I was following a suggested way to do it and it looks like that way left me without a swap file. So before I disable hibernate , I would like to ad the swap file to my partition. Again how is that done.

Edit the file /etc/sleep.conf and add the following to it:


(you can just uncomment the entries there and make sure they are set to no).

Also, in /etc/logind.conf you can set
