This will also override any of your user's power settings, and will work whether you are logged in or not (system-wide). You can configure it via running:
sudo nano /etc/systemd/logind.conf

HandlePowerKey=, HandleSuspendKey=, HandleHibernateKey=,
Controls whether logind shall handle the system power and sleep keys and the lid switch to trigger actions such as system power-off or

HandleLidSwitch= defaults to "suspend".
HandleHibernateKey= defaults to
