Description Lennart Poettering 2012-09-20 16:22:28 EDT
With systemd-190 we have changed the lid switch logic, as discussed here:


If GNOME wants to handle the power key/reset key/lid switch on its own it should take the "handle-power-key", "handle-reset-key", "handle-lid-switch" inhibitor locks while running. It can do this either natively in C by accessing logind's D-Bus API (see above), or simply by wrapping the invocation of gnome-session in an invocation of systemd-inhibit.


systemd-inhibit --what=handle-power-key:handle-reset-key:handle-lid-switch gnome-session

Comment 1 Lennart Poettering 2012-09-20 16:26:49 EDT
I am a bit confused apparently. Replace "reset key" with "sleep key" everywhere in what I wrote above. Sorry for the confusion.
Comment 2 Lennart Poettering 2012-09-25 19:00:52 EDT
Let's make this even more confusing. The "sleep key" logic got split up into "suspend key" and "hibernate key"
Comment 3 Matthias Clasen 2012-09-26 19:02:24 EDT
We'll put a patch for this into gnome-settings-daemon,
Comment 4 Matthias Clasen 2012-09-26 20:42:57 EDT
Not doing this leads to pretty bad double-suspend behaviour, so putting this on the F18Beta

Comment 7 Adam Williamson 2012-10-03 13:40:53 EDT
Discussed at 2012-10-03 blocker review meeting: http://meetbot.fedoraproject.org/fedora-qa/2012-10-03/f18-beta-blocker-review-2.2012-10-03-16.00.log.txt . Rejected as a blocker, the only known practical impact of this is on suspend (closing lid of a laptop would suspend on close and then again on open, so you'd have to push power button), and suspend is generally not a blocker for Beta (there are no criteria for suspend, intentionally). We agreed to leave NTH status open, since there's still nearly a week before freeze anyway and this will in all likelihood get pushed before then.
