No suspend with mounted samba share

Postby drhex » Thu Sep 30, 2010 11:21 am

At first, my Amilo M3438G / Ubuntu 10.04 suspended fine when asked to.
After installing the proprietary Nvidia driver, it would also wake up from suspend. A nice touch :wink:

There's also a windows box on the LAN, so I used samba to be able to connect to its shared directories.
Now, when I choose "suspend" from the menu, the screen show funny patterns and goes blank for a few seconds (as expected),
but instead of switching off the screen it asks for the current user's password (which I explicitly disabled for suspend using gconf-editor /gnome-powermanagement).
If I first unmount the samba share, suspend will proceed without problems.

Any hints on how to make it either:
* suspend properly despite having a samba share monuted, or
* auto-unmount the share before suspending (preferably with some "force" option since it frequently looses the connection resulting in long delays for any network operation)

As this is no hardware specific issue, I'd suggest you ask this question in a Linux or Ubuntu forum. There, the chances for a good answer will be higher ;-)
(If you do that, please post a link to the new thread in the other forum. Thanks.)
