This fixed the problem for me (running 2.6.31-15-generic on Karmic)

Run gconf-editor and go to

/ --> apps --> gnome-power-manager --> actions

and uncheck the box labeled "event_when_closed_battery".

This option is described to be:

"If the battery lid close event should occur (for example 'Suspend when lid closed on battery') when the lid is previously shut and the AC power disconnected at a later time."

I can confirm that Kenneth's workaround (comment #3) works for me too.

Hi all,

I was wondering if we should mark this bug as a duplicate of bug #473876. If so, I'd encourage you to do it, and follow all comments on this one.

Thanks in advance.
