A (minor) annoyance of my recent new build Windows 10 machine has been its inability to properly sleep. I’d hit Sleep, it’d go through the motions of spinning down fans and sleeping… and then immediately spring back into life.
I’ve actually put up with this for months, but yesterday spent some time working out what was happening, so for Future Howard’s benefit, here’s how to see what is keeping your machine awake.
Another post to save Future Howard the trouble of trying to remember how to fix a problem: when the DNS server in the USG-PRO has cached an old or invalid IP for a host. To verify:
You’re welcome, Future Howard.
For future-Howard (and team), how to fix the error from SVN “your .svn/tmp directory may be missing or corrupt”.
for /R /D %i in (.svn) do if exist "%i" mkdir "%i/tmp"
Open CMD, cd to the SVN directory then run the above command. It will place a new tmp directory inside each .svn directory.
After you run the command, an svn cleanup should succeed.
Another post for future Howard, which may be useful to other people with a very specific set of circumstances. Namely: you’re running Snow Leopard on a Gigabyte P35-DS4 with a GeForce 8800 GTX 768MB in the first PCIE slot, and a GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB in the second.
I always forget this in between using it, so for the benefit of future Howard, here’s how to fix orphaned users resulting from restoring a SQL database to a different machine.
