Shutdown on Soft Button Press (Dock Icon)

Unread post by octopusbeak » Sun May 22, 2016 1:59 am

I got android 4.4.4 working on my XU4. It has a few bugs but only one is bad. The power button on the dock (vu7 touchscreen) brings up power options dialog, and then shuts down the computer after about five seconds no matter what. I can click (touch) outside of the dialog box to close it, but the computer shuts down regardless. It also shuts down if the hard power button is pressed, no matter what, but this isn't so annoying. The soft button is easy to accidentally press when scrolling, typing, etc and then I have to wait for the computer to reboot. I also can't put computer to sleep or hibernate mode for this reason.

How do I modify power button press action? Or remove it from the dock outright?

Thanks for any help. Can post terminal outputs if you like.

How long time you pressed the power icon or hard power button?
Did you do just a short click on the touch screen?

In either case I press the button very briefly, less than a half or quarter second.

I updated the system to see if it would change. It didn't help, but it changed the screen resolution back to the default. While I lost the dock altogether (with the incorrect display option), the computer didn't shut down automatically when I pressed the hardware button briefly. This makes me think the power button problem is unique to the 'odroid VU7' display option in the Odroid Utility.

Thanks odroid. You work hard.

Try the latest V3.8. You need to press and hold the power button(or soft button) for a few seconds to trigger the shutdown process)
