Description Paul Smith 2011-07-12 18:02:33 EDT
Dear All, On my laptop, I want that, when the lid closed, neither suspension nor hibernation take place. Towards this end, I select "Do nothing" when the lid closes (both for AC and for Battery). Notwithstanding, my laptop goes into sleep/hibernation mode when I close its lid. Thanks in advance, Paul

Paul, thanks for submitting this bug report. Lets try to debug the issue: First of all make sure there is only xfce4-power-manager running. Please give me the output of the command ps -A | grep power Does the laptop still suspend if you run killall xfce4-power-manager before you close the lid?
Comment 2 Paul Smith 2011-07-12 18:42:57 EDT
Thanks, Christoph, for your reply -- it was most useful to isolate the source of the problem. Gnome-power-manager and xfce4-power-manager were running simultaneously! After having removed gnome-power-manager, the reported problem became fixed. Thus, I think this bug report can be closed. Paul

Hi Paul, thanks for the quick feedback. I already was thinking of something like this. The particular problem with gnome-power-manager is that in GNOME 3 / Fedora 15 you can no longer configure what happens if you close the lid, g-p-m will just suspend the machine. As you can see on http://blogs.gnome.org/hughsie/2011/02/02/is-gnome-3-going-to-melt-your-laptop many people are not happy with this decision. However you can still change the behavior with gnome-tweak-tool if you like to continue with g-p-m. I have an - only partly - related question: Do the brightness keys work for you when g-p-m is not running?

If you mean Fn key + Up arrow key and Fn key + Down arrow key they appear to have no effect at all. Paul

Same problem here. They work with g-p-m, however not with x-p-m. I need to look into that and keep you updated. But this a different issue, so I am going to close this one now.
