I would like to run a script after my laptop lid is opened. is there anything like rc.local that is run after the laptop wakes up after suspending?

I use Ubuntu 12

(I need it because some of the systems settings are reset after the lid is closed)


You could try the pm-utils package.
I don't know if this is installed by default on Ubuntu.
You can then write a hook script (at e.g. /etc/pm/sleep.d/00_my_resume_hook) such as

case "${1}" in
        # nothing
        #your script here

I may have glossed over some essential details here.

  • I'd recommend using the /etc/acpi/handler.sh script. – user13742 May 4 '12 at 14:23

    So I have /etc/acpi/powerbtn.sh, but not /etc/acpi/handler.sh. Is this just something I fill out? Any more information regarding this? – Ehtesh Choudhury Apr 2 '13 at 21:38
