Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-power-manager

I have a Toshiba Tecra M9 (although I think the make and model are irrelevant) and I'm finding that when I close the lid, even with the AC power plugged in the laptop suspends. This is new for Karmic on this machine. It's running gnome-power-manager 2.28.1-0ubuntu1.

But TBH, this happens before I log into the desktop even, so maybe it's not gnome-power-manager related. Or maybe it is. I'm not sure.

I just logged into gnome and closed the lid and it didn't suspend, so this appears to only be an issue when not logged in.

Any ideas?

Thanks for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. Could you please open a terminal and execute: apport-collect 517820 ? It will attach the necessary information to this report. Thanks in advance.

Pedro,

I can, but it will have to wait for a reboot since the CurrentDmesg portion contains data pertinent to the corporate network that I cannot allow to be made public. This of course goes back to my long-standing bug about allowing a user to edit the apport collected data before it's sent to redact sensitive information. If that were done, I could simply redact the dmesg lines that leak information and send it as is.

FWIW, I just confirmed that this is happening in Lucid also. I closed the lid (before logging in to the desktop) right before I collected this information in fact and it suspended.

The same for Maverick (netbook edition at least). I think this is the default behavior before gnome-power-manager kicks in with your settings (where you can set it to just Blank the screen when you are on AC).
