[Bug 1511703] Re: Standby timeout setting ignored after system suspend/resume


1. Yes, if /lib/systemd/system-sleep/ doesn't exist, create it with mkdir.
2. Yes.
3. No, unless for some reason you want to limit the script to suspend only, or something. Here's my script:


case $1/$2 in
    hdparm -B 254 -S 120 /dev/sdb

4. Yes, with chmod u+x <filename>.

  Standby timeout setting ignored after system suspend/resume

Status in gnome-disk-utility package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  If a standby timeout setting is applied in Drive Settings, this works
  fine at first when the setting is made, and after the system is
  rebooted. However, if the system is suspended and resumed, the timeout
  setting is ignored and the disk continues to spin.

  Using Ubuntu 15.10, gnome-disk-utility 3.16.2.
