#585 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Activity resume after power cycle

Reported by: walter Owned by: tomeu
Priority: Unspecified by Maintainer Milestone:
Component: Sugar Version: 0.84.x
Severity: Minor Keywords: community-request
Cc: sascha_silbe Distribution/OS: Unspecified
Bug Status: Unconfirmed


Feature request from the wiki...

I have discovered that a journal entry is really a saving of the state of an activity comprising data, activity, view state (not always restored properly), etc. This notion of a saved state that may be identically resumed is very good, and very convenient, when it has been fully implemented by an activity. It should extend to power cycles. When I turn the machine back on, all my running activities should be resumed and the clipboard should have all my clips, and the machine view should be restored to the most recent active activity before power cycling.

I guess we should reuse the session management infrastructure in GNOME

While this could be quite convenient, we should give the user the option not to do it. Imagine someone startin either a lot of activities or a single buggy activity that hogged the computer so much that shutdown was the only viable option. We certainly wouldn't want to turn that into a vicious circle by resuming all activities automatically...

Thinking more about it, adding suspend-to-disk (ACPI S4 / hibernation) support to Sugar might be a better idea. It has the same power draw as powering off (ACPI S5) and we don't need to do anything fancy like auto-resuming activities. Startup time (reading RAM contents and device state from disk) usually is also much less than full boot - especially with Sugar.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

I'm not sure it make sense to track this until we had a design discussion on the list.
