Linux Wake On Keyboard

Quick tip – Not all Linux-based operating systems wake from suspend mode when you use your keyboard. To enable that feature, do this:

echo USB0 > /proc/acpi/wakeup

You can add that line to /etc/rc.d/rc.local (on Fedora, similar elsewhere) to make sure the setting is enabled on startup.

    Putting my Linux Fedora 10 to sleep sends
    the system to la-la land.
    hard-reboot only.

    This seems to have been fixed at some point in newer kernels, so you shouldn’t need to do it anymore on a modern distribution.
