I just upgraded to 13.10 and tried configuring at the Settings Manager, but it doesn't seem to work. So I tried configuring xfce4-power-manager/lid-action-on-ac and it didn't work eiter. Then, at last, tried editing /etc/systemd/logind.conf to:


And #LidSwitchIgnoreInhibited is marked "yes" by default, but I've tried switching it to "no", with no response.

So, the computer is still suspending when the lid is closed... What else should I try? Or is it Xubuntu 13.10 installation that is bugged?

have you checked the settings under Screensaver? Some time it is screensaver which causes such suspend.. – Saurav Kumar Oct 28 '13 at 20:42
Screensaver is disabled. – trita Oct 28 '13 at 20:48
Strange! I wish some one will help you asap!! – Saurav Kumar Oct 28 '13 at 20:59

Well, simple answer ...

# is a prefix for a line comment, so all lines with # are comments. Simply remove the # at lines you want to activate and it will work.

I tried it and it works for me.
