A year ago I did a lot of testing on my gemini linux device and finally left it alone, because it did not work for the (very limited) use case I need it for. After a year I had some spare time and blew the dust from my gemini. The good news is that I made some progress and have more hope to use the gemini for my daily life. I want to use the gemini just offline and sync it with my desktop while being at home:
- agenda, contacts, tasks
- notes taking and text editing
- basic (osm) maps (foxtrotgps seems to fit the bill)
- music listening
- reading and annotating books and articles
Syncing is really a pain in the arse. Many progs don't like interference with their data from external systems. Other programs (like evolution) just refuse to work if there is no connection with a (caldev or carddev) server. I finallly found some very down to earth progs which just take what they are offered as data (calcurse, abook, wikidpad) and I succesfully using them for a while now. But I still have quite a few hick-ups which I hope you can help me with. I have TP2 installed and as far as I know I installed everything like I should. I did not use the flashtool to make a new image. Just upgraded from TP1. My main problem is that lock-on-close-lid is not working. I made sure 'enable lid watcher' is off as I understand it would interfere with 'xss-lock gemian-lock'. Another thing is that brightness is not working (not by 'Lxqt settings', nor by using Fn-N/Fn-B ). It used to work, I am not aware to have changed something.

If someone can give me hints I would very much like to hear.

For my ears the sound of the device is nice enough. So it would be nice to use the gemian als my daily music player. If I connect headphones to the device both the headphones and the speakers on the device give sound. I don't see any settings on the desktop to make the sound on the speakers turned off if the headphones are connected. Is there a way to organize this ?

I tested quite a few times now, but if I leave the device in suspend mode overnight it still drains the battery with 2% / hour. I made sure that wifi and bluetooth both where off. I am very curious what other people's experiences on this are. Adam Boardman wrote anywhere that he experiences 2% drain on a full night. What can I do to achieve a better power management on my device ?

If I do suspend via the menu 'Start/Leave/Suspend' I get a subscreen asking
Do you want really to suspend your computer?
Suspends the computer into a low power state. System state is not preserved isf the power is lost

When I confirm this the screen turns black. I can reactivate the screen by pressing Esc. I then get a wordmap with yellow bubbles. While I write my password I get a green circle in the middle turning red if I type wrong and blue if I type right. It finally brings me back to the desktop. Desktops opens with a subscreen message
An error occurred starting screensaver. Action 'activate' faild. Ensure you haave xscreensaver installed and running.

After I confirmed desktop works fine again.

I presume the 'suspend' of my system is a real 'suspend' but I don't know for sure. How can I know if suspend really suspends ?
