I am using puppylinux (xenialpup 64 bit). In order to put it to sleep mode, I run "acpitool -s" in cli. It works fine.

But if I put it in a file, save it as .sh file, then mark it as executable, and then double-click to execute it. It makes the system sleep for just a moment and turns on immediately. I didn't understand what is missing / going wrong.


Posting answer to my own Q so that it might be useful to someone else also.

acpitool -s

This should go into a .sh file. Mark this file as executable. Run it. And it does the trick.
