Wow Pavroo, you updated UC to the latest version very fast! Regarding the standby mode, I wanted other users to know (it works for me) that the standby mode is available now from the screensaver panel (and choose the mode "blank screen only" or the one they like) and not from the power management panel (the same in Sparky 6.7) if they can't get any suspension for their pc/laptop using the power management's settings.
Thank you once again Pavroo for your quick update.

Yesterday I updated Sparky to 7.1 Mate orion Belt kernel 6.1 0 13-amd64 Apple iMac 2010
The install itself ran fine and Sparky ran well for about 10 minutes I had Firefox browser open and it began to spawn non stop duplicate browser windows The Space key locked itself in repeat mode and ran wild/keyboard locked up
System then became un-responsive and I had to do a hard shutdown
On reboot, (several tries) I got a boot error stating the encrypted disk could not be found Tried several work-arounds and suggestions on here but had no luck Had to erase and re install Sparky from scratch,as Grub Boot would not repair
Luckily I could run a Live Sparky from a USB and retrieve files from the hard disk before doing an new install
I am still getting the occasional runaway Space bar cursor problem, using a newish mechanical keyboard that otherwise works fine Not much fun,but at least I am up and running again!

The thing is till 2 days ago I could disable the screensaver and get the notebook suspended using the power management then suddenly some update must have changed something and now it is not possible to get the laptop in standby mode if you do not set the same minutes in the screensaver panel...I had posted another question last Friday on Ungoogled Chromium not being updated to the the latest version even updating packages, any news?
