My wife has an Acer Aspire One (with the SSD Card and an SD expansion card). It has never been able to hibernate or suspend, always creating errors and occasionally trashing the data on the SD card, which is the home partition so it's unfortunate.

To get around the problem I have set all exit methods to produce shutdown - she tends to simply shut the lid. I'm aware the default behavior has for some time been to suspend, but I've got round that using the gnome tweak tool.

However, I've just installed 13.10 and whilst I have installed the gnome tweak tool and set it to shut down the system appears to be ignoring/bypassing the setting, electing to suspend when the lid is shut.

Can anyone tell me how to fix it please? I'm quite happy to get my hands dirty with the command line.
