Problem with detection of laptop lid open/close
Last modified: 2009-11-18 16:17:50 EST
Description of problem:
My screen doesn't lock when laptop lid is closed, although this is set in guidance power manager.
Also once in a while (every 5th boot or so) when i start kde i get the message:
"Laptop lid is closed, blanking screen now"
This appears in a popup, and afterwords the screen blanks briefly, and i have to type my password to unlock.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I have have had this problem since the release of Fedora 10.
(I have not had this problem on other dists before changing to Fedora when version 10 arrived, so it is probably not hardware related)
I'm using up to date Fedora 10 (kernel 188.8.131.52-170.2.5.fc10.x86_64) with kde4 (4.1.4)
I'm not sure this is guidance-power-manager related, maybe it is in kernel and/or acpi
rpm -q acpid dbus guidance-power-manager kdelibs
If acpid isn't installed, please do so (and ensure you have the latest dbus):
yum install acpid dbus
Do problems persist?
They are both installed and updated:
Package acpid-1.0.6-9.fc10.x86_64 already installed and latest version
Package 1:dbus-1.2.4-2.fc10.x86_64 already installed and latest version
Oups forgot something:
rpm -q acpid dbus guidance-power-manager kdelibs:
See upstream bug for a patch to fix the mis-detection on login issue. Still present in 4.2.0-1.
Thanks, we'll give the patch a whirl, and recommend and push harder for upstream inclusion once it's been field-tested a bit more.
Still an issue or did the patch solve the problem?
I'm on 4.2.2 now and using the included power-devil instead of guidance. I'm still seeing some strangeness, though. E.g. it sometimes suspends when unplugging power, regardless of battery state. Laptop lid open/close does not seem to be registered.
Ping any movement on this Rex?

This message is a reminder that Fedora 10 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 10. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '10'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 10's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 10 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
With F10 going EOL next month, and the fact that this package has been retired going to close this as WONTFIX
