I'm getting the same (different netbook though) viewtopic.php?f=175&t=68987&p=398667

If I set power button to anything other than 'ask me' then it works - do you get the same?

i initially tried installing gnome version but it asked for login and password when installing from usb stick so tried the LXDE version.

is there an easy way to switch to the gnome version now i have lxde running?

ok, now got gnome running but same issue with closing the lid not having any effect.

however, power button now works for the 'ask me' function.

will now go post my query in the gnome area :)

Hola, mismo problema al cerrar la tapa en una acer one D255E se queda encendida. Para resolver este problema en mint 12 LXDE abrir una consola y escribir:

Code: Select all

sudo leafpad /etc/acpi/lid.sh


Te pide el password y abre el editor leafpad, luego hay que borrar el contenido de ese archivo y copiar el texto siguiente y pegarlo en leafpad:

Code: Select all

#!/bin/bash

sleep 6
/usr/sbin/pm-suspend


Guardar el archivo.

Cuando se reinicie el acpid o al reiniciar la compu ya estará funcionando.


Hi, same problem on acer one D255E when clossing the lid stays on. To solve it on mint 12 LXDE open console and type:

Will Ask for password and will open leafpad editor, then should erase the content of that file and copy the next text and paste into leafpad:

/usr/sbin/pm-suspend


Save file.

When restart acpid or rebooting the computer will start working.
