Blank screen instead of sleep closing notebook lid

Postby Acid_1 on Mon Dec 30, 2013 10:36 pm

Hi, I recently moved to LMDE as my main distro, from Mint 14. I used to be able to click the power icon and make it so the notebook blanks the screen instead of sleeping so downloads and compiling wouldn't stop.

How do I do this in lmde cinnamon now?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Found it. Have to use gsettings.

Code: Select all
gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power lid-close-ac-action nothing & gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power lid-close-battery-action nothing
