autosuspend is a daemon that periodically that suspends a system on inactivity. For this purpose, it periodically iterates a number of user-configurable checks, which shall indicate whether a certain activity on the host is currently present that should prevent the host from suspending. In case one of the checks indicates such activity, no action is taken and periodic checking continues. Otherwise, in case no activity can be detected, this state needs to be present for a specified amount of time before the host is suspended by autosuspend.
If not specified via a command line argument, autosuspend looks for a default configuration at
autosuspend.conf(5) describes the configuration file, the available checks, and their configuration options.
Displays an online help.
Specifies an alternate config file to use instead of the default on at
Usually, autosuspend stops checks in each iteration as soon as the first matching check indicates system activity. If this flag is set, all subsequent checks are still executed. Useful mostly for debugging purposes.
If specified, do not run endlessly. Instead, operate only for the specified amount of seconds, then exit. Useful mostly for debugging purposes.
