#466 new enhancement/feature request

inhibit power management while routing

Reported by: kiddo Owned by: cp15
Priority: major Milestone: version 0.6.0

Description

GNOME has an API for temporarily preventing the computer from automatically going into power saving mode (such as sleep/hibernate/poweroff).

In particular, http://www.gnome.org/~mccann/gnome-session/docs/gnome-session.html#org.gnome.SessionManager.Inhibit

There's a D-Bus interface called org.gnome.SessionManager?.Inhibitor (see also http://blogs.gnome.org/hughsie/2009/01/28/inhibits-and-the-new-world-order/)

It would be very nice if Navit inhibited suspend when routing (or anything that really shouldn't be interrupted).

Example: http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=588876

  • Milestone set to want patch / contribution

This was discussed some times ago here : #194

In short : currently, you can use a wrapper script.

Nonetheless, supporting the API would be nice (especially since you provided quite some informations about it). Until it gets higher priority for us, patch is welcome.

  • Milestone changed from want patch / contribution to version 0.6.0

I know that there is a power managment interface within Navit, but I need more time to figure out under which conditions it already works.
