Bug Description

os: Kubuntu 19.10 - fresh install, all packages up to date as of 2 December 2019
hardware: Thinkpad T470 i7-75000, 8GB RAM

when the laptop is shutdown, if I close the lid before finishing powering down the laptop will suspend rather than shutdown. When I next open the lid, the laptop wakes and finishes shutting down.

was not doing this with any release from Kubuntu 18.04 - 19.04.
