Since I installed 11.10 the system does not suspend when I close the lid.

In Power Management, the values for both battery and plug are set to suspend. When I just click on suspend, it works fine.

There are multiple bugs with the suspend feature and various hardware configurations. You might have run into the UI/configuration defect however bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-settings-daemon/+bug/… –  mario Oct 15 '11 at 18:20

A lot of the settings (including whether to suspend when the lid is closed, iirc) that were hidden by both Unity and GNOME 3 are still available in gconf. Install the gnome-tweak-tool package to change them.
