[Edit]: Can anybody verify my observation of energy consumption?

If the Iliad was shutdown from the watchdog, it would use the same level of power as if you powered down with the switch.

My guess is that for some reason the watchdog didn't fire, and the machine powered down because of low batteries.

Are you by any chance using a beta of V2.8? The watchdog will need updating before it works with that...

Mmh. Ok, maybe it was my fault, who knows. The first test before going to sleep was ok for me, iLiad shut down.

No, still 2.7 here. I have read Matthijs' post: "watchdog relies on 'accidental' functionality".

Do you plan a gui? If not, we could use 2 manifest.xml for [+] [-] a variable $timer, the 3rd one could read $timer & start watchdog.

I've already made a launcher (i.e. a manifest file and an icon I found with google image search). Let me know if you want me to post it.

But I've run into some problems: It seems that the watchdog is terminated. If I start a shell and use that to start watchdog, ps -fe | grep dog shows me it is running. When I terminate the shell, starts a new shell and lists processes, it is not running anymore. Will investigate further tonight, perhaps nohup will work, just gotta get some sleep first:-)

hmmm. I'm not in my office so I can't check tonight. Can you try

Code:
disown %1
after you'ver started the watchdog. It's possible it's being held by the shell jobcontrol.

nope, disown didn't work... strange. This is probably the most actually useful community application for the iLiad... I am not a Linux expert, could use some help here!

When I launch the application using the shell, it works. When I start the application through the launcher, nothing happens... will look further into it next available hour :S

Forgot to post here: Watchdog works fine now. I don't know what the problem was, but I lost the folder and had to recreate the scripts, and it worked fine. Probably a silly bug in my run.sh
