My use of the word "babysitting" literally meant to sit in front of the computer and hit keys to wake up the computer every time it went into hibernation. During the install, I couldn't count the number of times I did that since it took probably half an hour to install this way -- so 30, 40 times of hitting the keyboard?

I'm having a similar problem with the software installer on Fedora 21.

I noticed the problem when I have been trying to update Flash using the "yum for Linux". It downloads, asks me for the root password, and then then eventually comes back with "Sorry, this did not work". I had assumed that Adobe just wasn't paying attention with its scripts. However, when I tried to install something directly from software using the Fedora repos, I received the same result.

The problem seems to have been fixed by:

  • install F21 32bit workstation, by babysitting the system throughout the whole install to keep waking it up every minute or so (literally!)
  • reboot using a live-dvd that works on the system, such as the F21 XFCE live-DVD
  • mount the hard drive (not really sure specifically how my brother did it but using Thunar seemed to help out a lot)
  • open a terminal session and make sure the hard drive is mounted
  • edit the file /etc/systemd/logind.conf
  • uncomment the settings for "HandleSuspendKey" and "HandleLidSwitch"
  • set the "HandleSuspendKey" and "HandleLidSwitch" options to "ignore"
  • save the file
  • reboot
  • enjoy

My system is not happily doing a yum update, which it couldn't do before.

I have reinstalled F21 workstation, which is what Iwouldlike to have on the system.

Unfortunately the systemd-inhibit bash command doesn't work, the system keeps on going to sleep, and wakes up right away when I hit any key and resumes where it had been a moment before.

With my "brother in the know" I will be using the XFCE live CD in live mode to mount the hard drive and try to disable the suspend functions.

Further note: This machine has had most versions of Fedora from F11 to F19 and this has never been an issue yet.

Thank you!

Thanks

I'Ve just tried the live-cd for workstation with the battery in and fully charged (over 1hr capacity) and things are still the same.

Thanks for the suggestion though!

In this particular case, the battery is physically out of the machine and it's running purely on mains electricity. However, I'll try plugging in the battery and reinstall.

Thanks for the suggestion / perspective!

I have reformatted with the XFCE spin, and I tried to swap in the workstation through the command line and yum. unfortunately it didn't work well and just hangs ... then while hung, it went into hibernation.

I am now reinstalling the XFCE spin, and I am very disappointed because the workstation is what I would like to install. Clearly, it installs, and clearly, beyond going into hibernation in less then a minute, and repetitively so after being reawakened, workstation otherwise works on the system (well, best I can tell).

Will the livecd be re-released with this problem left out?

a bit of background: I had installed the xfce spin and it was stable, without the problem of the system going into hibernation mode after a minute or so. No, I am not closing the clamshell.
