Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 983249
Can't figure out how to disable suspend on lid-close
Last modified: 2015-02-17 11:03:43 EST
Description of problem:
In past versions of fedora setting lid-close-ac-action and lid-close-battery-action to blank in dconf (org/gnome/settings daemon/plugins/power) was sufficient to prevent suspend on lid close. This doesn't appear to work anymore: It keeps suspending even with it set to blank or nothing.
(Suspend on lid close is problematic for me as I frequently move rooms and the suspend tears down tcp connections, pauses my computing runs, and takes several seconds to recover; carrying the laptop with the screen open risks damaging it)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Every time on my system
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install F19 replacing a prior F17 install
2. Set it to not suspend in dconf
3. Observe it suspending anyways
Suspended computer or damaged screen from being carried open
Not suspended computer
Xmonad "desktop environment", though it was also suspending on lid close under GNOME3 for the brief time that was running before I copied my home back over.
(Sorry if this is a dumb question— I tried asking on IRC first but its currently impossible to join #fedora because freenode nickserv is down, and no one is responding in #fedora-unregistered)
does HandleLidSwitch=ignore in /etc/systemd/logind.conf fix it?
Ray, Thank you!
Oddly, I missed the bugmail with your reply and so had gone ahead to make the kernel panic on suspend in order to figure out what process was triggering it! Sure enough, it was systemd and I was just returning here to propose the same solution you gave me.
Should this be documented someplace?
This message is a notice that Fedora 19 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 19. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now this bug will
be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '19'.
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.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 19 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, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
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.
Fedora 19 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-01-06. Fedora 19 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
