How to Detach From a Running Docker Image Here is another quick note. This time about Docker.

# Run the standard Ubuntu image
docker run --name=bash -i -t ubuntu /bin/bash

# Do something

# Detach by typing Ctl-p and Ctl-q.

# Look at the image while on the Host system.
docker ps

# Reattach to the Ubuntu image
docker attach bash

While experimenting with these commands, I noticed that I needed to press to see the prompt after the ^P^Q combination and after reattaching.
