Lubuntu 14.04 How to turn off lid close power suspend.

Unread post by bannination » Mon May 04, 2015 7:30 pm

I couldn't disable the closing of the lid going into suspend power mode while setting up and eeePC to be a webserver.
So here's how to do it:


Open /etc/systemd/logind.conf using your favorite text editor -- pico, gedit, whatever.

Find the line that says:

Code: Select all

#HandleLidSwitch=whatever
Replace with:

Code: Select all

HandleLidSwitch=ignore
Profit.
When I was a small girl, I dreamt of standing in a room, looking at a girl who was and was not myself, who stood looking at another girl who was and was not myself. My mother took this as a nightmare. I saw it as the beginning of a career in physics.
