I'm running Ubuntu 14.04 on an Asus n550jv. I had this problem in 13.10 also.

I want to disable resume-from-suspend when the laptop lid is opened. The traditional answers to this involve echo "LID" > /proc/acpi/wakeup, but there is no entry for LID in this file:

$ cat /proc/acpi/wakeup
Device  S-state   Status   Sysfs node
RP01      S4    *disabled  pci:0000:00:1c.0

PEG1      S4    *disabled
PEG2      S4    *disabled
SLPB      S4    *enabled 

acpi_listen isn't very helpful either:

$ acpi_listen 
button/lid LID 00000080 000000f5
video GFX0 00000080 00000000
button/lid LID 00000080 000000f6
video GFX0 00000080 00000000

I found some additional info, but sadly this does not help:

Toggle /sys/devices/platform/asus-nb-wmi/lid_resume using

# echo 0 > /sys/devices/platform/asus-nb-wmi/lid_resume

I actually want to enable resume when LID is opened :) But I also do not have LID listed in wakeup (sorry have to move to answer as this doesn't allow long paste) – gliptak May 24 '14 at 19:05
