So I installed Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS onto my laptop a few days ago and have run into a strange problem. If I shut the lid on my laptop and allow the computer to go into sleep mode, when I try to use it next it will go back into sleep mode about every 30 seconds. The only way I have found to fix it so far is to do a hard restart.

I also tried changing settings in /etc/systemd/logind.conf to:


Any suggestions on what to do?

dmesg log before shutting lid:

[    1.063558] input: Lid Switch as /devices/LNXSYSTM:00/LNXSYBUS:00/PNP0A08:00/device:19/PNP0C09:01/PNP0C0D:00/input/input0
[    1.063567] ACPI: Lid Switch [LID0]

dmesg log after shutting lid:

[    1.063558] input: Lid Switch as /devices/LNXSYSTM:00/LNXSYBUS:00/PNP0A08:00/device:19/PNP0C09:01/PNP0C0D:00/input/input0
[    1.063567] ACPI: Lid Switch [LID0]
[ 3862.929353] ACPI: button: The lid device is not compliant to SW_LID.

Hardware: - 2017 Razer Blade - Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS

edit 1: Leaving the lid open and letting the laptop sleep does not lead to this problem

edit 2: I've found that setting


fixes the issue

  • Welcome to AskUbuntu! Please add logs from dmesg starting from the time you close the lid of the laptop. You can edit and update your question to include the additiona info. Also include some details about the machine hardware and setup. That will greatly help in trying to figuring out what is goind on. – Bernard Wei Aug 31 '18 at 17:53
  • Thank you! For me I only had to do "HandleLidSwitch=ignore", but this fixed the issue I was having with my Razer Blade 14". Running "sudo systemctl restart systemd-logind" fixed it on the spot. – Nicholas Pipitone Oct 18 '19 at 2:15
