Running Ubuntu Server 11.10 on a laptop. I would like to find a way to have the lcd display power off when I close the lid. Don't want to burned it out. Tried search for an hour, but couldn't find a solution anywhere. At least not for the server version.
Please note, this is the Server version I am asking about. There is no GUI.
Tried searching for "ubuntu server" with words like "power management", "lid close", "display power", etc.
New: I found a way to detect if the laptop lid is closed with the acpid daemon. Is there any kind of power management command that will power off the display?
