Description of problem:
X windows exits and restarts when the laptop lid is closed.
This issue is acknowledged with Ubuntu:
Furthermore, the issue is acknowledged as an xorg problem and has been resolved:
However, despite using the latest FC6 udpates, I am still affected by this
problem. Thus my problem is actually that this update to xorg has not been
incorporated into fc6 updates!
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I am using xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.1.1-47.8.fc6. Looking at the source in
xorg-x11-server-1.1.1-47.8.fc6.src.rpm, the issues exists with
xorg-server-1.1.1/hw/xfree86/os-support/linux/lnx_acpi.c and I could not see a
patch for it...
Steps to Reproduce:
Close laptop lid whilst X running.
X windows exits and restarts.
X windows does not exit and selected power-saving behaviour occurs.
This should be fixed in xorg-x11-server 1.1.1-47.10.fc6. Please test, and
reopen if this is still an issue.
