I install Ubuntu 13.04 using Refind. It works ok, but when I close the notebook, it shuts down. Does anybody have any solution to this? Thanks

You can set what happens when you "close the lid". To do that follow the following steps:

  1. Open System Settings located on the left.

2. A new Window just opened. Click on the Power Settings located under Hardware.

3. In the Power Settings you can choose what happens when you close the lid or when power is critical low etc. enter image description here

Thanks, but I had done this before. I've been using Linux for almost 2 years. This is probably a problem that needs a driver to be solved. Does anybody here had the same problem with the macbook retina? – user161115 May 24 '13 at 23:22
