What Desktop Environment are you running? MATE? XFCE?

Haha, the one I forgot and also the one I don't have (since it conflicts with the newest gnome).

I'd do a search for something labeled "power" under settings. It should have an option to change what happens when you close the lid.

I don't have cinnamon either, but isn't there a battery icon in your panel? If you right click that, does it show a "preferences" option? If you click that, perhaps there's an option to choose what you want the power setting to do for your power button.
