Description Colin Macdonald 2013-09-27 06:34:22 EDT
Description of problem:
Normally a lid close suspends my laptop.  After a external VGA monitor is connected, lid close no longer suspends machine---even after external monitor disconnected.

How reproducible:
Depends on how long I wait, but I think everytime I disconnect and then suspend.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  close lid, note laptop suspends.  Then open.
2.  attach VGA monitor (other's not tested).
3.  unplug VGA, wait a few seconds
4.  close lid, *laptop does not suspend.*
5.  manually suspend (keyboard or menu)
6.  open machine, now close again and suspend works normally.

Note "wait a few seconds": if you leave it for say 5mins after disconnect, it works correctly.  If I get around to determining how long, I'll add that info.

Will test again with F20 once I upgrade.

Still present on F20.  If I wait approx 30 seconds, it works correctly.

Also present with DP and HDMI outputs.

Sounds like this is intended behaviour, #1081093, possibly with some bugs #1092905.

But the 30 second thing is deliberate.
