Using Ubuntu 10.10 on a HP Compaq 8710p laptop.
No matter what option I pick in the power manager, when I close my laptop lid the screen turns off. I'd like the laptop to suspend instead.
Suspend, resume, hibernate, thaw all work well when initiated by other means.
If anyone could offer a solution, or at least set me on the right track so I can research it/debug it myself, would be great.
@Alan: Thanks, I marked the bug as affecting me and offered to submit any logs at the Launchpad bug entry.
@wag: I tried playing with manually setting the values under buttons / lid_ac entry, but no luck. Thanks anyway.
I have discovered something new though: the settings work when the laptop is running on battery (i.e. the chosen setting in g-p-m is honored). When I plug in, I can only get the blank screen when I close the lid. Maybe this would suggest this is a proper g-p-m bug, since the lid sensor seems to be functional?
