This my first time using Ask Ubuntu so something might go wrong

I am running Ubuntu 13.10 on a laptop. I'm making a server (Not a Ubuntu server) and I need to 24/7, I normally have my laptop charging and the lid closed. I just need to find out how to let my Ubuntu terminal running even if my lid is closed, and when its not charged.

Regards, Tom

When you say "lid is closed" you mean on suspencion or hibernation? –  Henrique Ferreira Dec 16 '13 at 22:19
Welcome to askubuntu. Check the Power Management application, there should be an option to "do nothing" when the lid is closed. –  mikewhatever Dec 16 '13 at 22:19
