I am using XFCE power manager. Under System tab, for System Power Saving part, I choose System Sleep Mode to be: suspend when inactive for 1hr when Plugged in. The maximum inactive time length is 6 hours.
If I am running a command to back up my home to an external drive, such as
sudo rsync -a /home/tim /media/tim/externaldrive/ 2>rsync-errors
which can take more than 10 hours, and I leave my laptop alone and go to sleep, will my Ubuntu be suspended one hour after I leave my laptop, and therefore interrupt the backup command?
If yes, how can I prevent my backup command from being interrupted, without changing System Sleep Mode?
