Suspend on lid-close

Postby firefexx on Thu Jun 19, 2014 3:35 pm

Hi,

I recently installed LMDE with Cinnamon and observed some strange behaviour concerning suspend.
When logged in as a user, suspend when closing laptop-lid works as expected.
But when nobody is logged in, i.e. the log in screen is visible, nothing happens when closing the laptop-lid.

Could someone assist in fixing this issue?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

When nobody is logged in, it's MDM that's active, not Cinnamon. You may try another display manager (e.g. LightDM) for experiment.

Thank you for your answer, but lightdm doesn't suspend on lid-close, too.
lightdm works for me under Fedora but not with LMDE.
