Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-power-manager

I cannot choose "nothing" as action which should be triggered when closing the lid of my laptop via power-manager GUI.
But the backend has it already. Setting it manually to "nothing" via gconf-editor works.

Please add "nothing" to the dropdown list of options like: Hibernate, Sleep, Blank screen, <nothing>
This goes for AC power and battery power.

(Szenario: Watching a movie via laptop+beamer, laptop should be closed but screens should stay on. Best would be only external vga stayed on.)

Let's make this a dup of bug 736606, that is identical but has two votes and a slightly better writeup.
