Under "power management" I have

  • Put computer when inactive for: Never
  • When laptop lid is closed: Suspend
  • Put display to sleep when inactive for: 30 minutes

this used to work under 19.10. I've upgraded to 20.04 (Focal Fossa) and now if I leave the laptop plugged in and walk the dog, the laptop is asleep when I return. If I push the power button it resumes, but I don't want it to sleep when plugged in.


This should be controllable in the power section of settings. Suspend & Power Button > Automatic Suspend, as seen here https://i.imgur.com/ykGJ3x3.png
