Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-power-manager

By default in Ubuntu 9.10 gnome-power-preferences is set to:
On AC Power : When laptop lid is closed : Suspend

On Battery Power : When laptop lid is closed : Blank screen

I think this is rather unintuitive. It should be set to 'Suspend' in both cases. Or "Blank screen" on AC Power, and "Suspend" on Battery Power.

Thanks for your report and helping make Ubuntu better.

This does seem somewhat inconsistent. This is an Ubuntu specific change, and I don't think it is necessary. Commit 13 of ubuntu packaging:


/apps/gnome-power-manager/buttons/lid_battery blank

Is this delta (and the other deltas listed there) still required? The best thing to do would be bring this up with the desktop team mailing list:
<email address hidden>

or #ubuntu-desktop on freenode irc.

Note to self: Seb says that debian/gconf-defaults is correct; convert the patch which changes the upstream .schemas accordingly.
