Laptop utils

Various utils for linux-powered laptops. Multiple sessions are supported.


git clone
cd laptop-utils
sudo make install


Scripts adopted for Dell Latitude laptops. But I believe them can be helpfull for any other laptop.

Hibernate after suspend

You need to install pm-utils first. Next you need to set appropriate value for AUTO_HIBERNATE variable in /etc/default/laptop-utils. This variable controls how many seconds will pass before laptop will hibernate after suspend.

Dell dock support

At work and at home I'm using port replicators. So I wrote a script which is aware how to control external displays and my input preferences. I do not like point stick and prefer to disable touchpad if external mouse connected.

To use this functionality set appropriate values for LCDPANEL, TOUCHPAD and STICK variables in /etc/default/laptop-utils.
