Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 617594
Weird behaviour on notebook lid close with external monitor
Last modified: 2015-01-14 18:25:59 EST
Description of problem:
I have an external monitor. I set up Gnome to use both displays (notebook and external) and normally close the lid. But gnome-screensaver is configured to suspend the machine when closed and no external power, so it promptly goes to sleep. I have to restart the machine to ble abe to use it.
I set the System->Preferences->Monitors->Cconfigure display settings to use the external monitor by default, but it doesn't work (settings don't stay). Ditto for System->Preferences->Monitor settings.
[I try to run the machine without external power for a while so as to conserver the battery]
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Machine suspends, have to turn it on to be able to use it. It stays on after that (until timeout with no use)
Machine stays on as long as the external monitor is connected
Sorry that I'm not knowledegable enough about Gnome to pin this down further.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 14 development cycle.
Changing version to '14'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
This went away some time ago. Can't finger the update that fixed this, sorry. gnome-screensaver hasn't changed.
