I recently upgraded my Lubuntu from 13.04 to 13.10.
I have my
xfce-power-manager set on the lock screen action on lid close, but closing the lid still suspends the laptop in 13.10.
How can I set it to lock the screen?
It's a confirmed bug.
This trick work for me (Lubuntu 13.10):
Set "HandleLidSwitch=ignore" in "/etc/systemd/logind.conf" and restart.
I have also had this problem since upgrading to Ubuntu 13.10. I run an external monitor on my laptop, and like to have the lid closed while I work. I tried editing logind.conf however - I had no success.
In terminal type
dconf-editorto and then open up the menus on the left by clicking ->org -> gnome -> settings daemon -> plugins -> power
There us an option there called 'lid-close-suspend-with-external-monitor'
This did the trick for me!
