Power options

Postby jobhopper » Mon Jun 11, 2012 5:24 am

Hi everyone,

I recently installed LMDE and I'm using it with Cinnamon. I'm very happy with it as it fucntions perfectly. I just can't seem to find an option anywhere to keep my laptop running when I close the lid. Instead of it automatically suspending. Is there any way to change this? And preferably only when on AC power.

Kind regards

I'm not sure with respect to Cinnamon, but the power management on my MATE (M13) is buried in the screen saver.

Hi,

You'd have to install the gnome-tweak-tool.
Thereafter you'll find "Advanced Settings"
and there you can change the behavior,
when the laptop lid is closed.

Thanks a lot! That did it. Now my install is really perfect :D
By the way, at first I ran gnome-tweak-tool as sudo and it didn't work. So for other people, you have to run it as a normal user, then it will work.
