Bug Description

In System Settings> Power, action on lid closed is "Do nothing" for "When plugged in" and "Suspend" on "On battery power".

Now, I would expect this to mean that if i have my laptop plugged in and close the lid, nothing happens. Soi far so god. Additionally, I would expect that when I unplug the laptop when the lid is closed, is suspends. This does not happen. Hence the bug.

This is on Ubuntu 12.04, Thinkpad T500.

Sorry if this isn't helpful, but I just wanted to add that this has some potential to be considered somewhat urgent - possibly resulting in hardware damage. I have had this happen several times: close lid, unplug, put laptop in case/bag, open laptop hours later with a cranking fan and awful smell of hot electronics.
