Bug Description

Hi,

Probably the opposite of LP: #1574120, after upgrading from Xenial to Yakkety (alpha 2), it seems my laptop automatically goes into suspend when the lid is closed even though I have "When the lid is closed" setting set to "Do nothing".

I'm not sure what's changed, has the HandleLidSwitch default in logind changed? Also, any chance of fixing the "Power" setting so it correctly handles updating logind?

I had to update /etc/systemd/logind.conf and add "HandleLidSwitch=ignore".

Thank you for your bug report. Unity-control-center didn't change so it's not likely due to it. Could you copy the output of "systemd-inhibit" to the bug?

the desktop side didn't change and there is an inhibitor listed, likely to be a systemd issue

affects: unity-control-center (Ubuntu) → systemd (Ubuntu)

I think it is now just a matter of releasing the update and/or the config change:

LidSwitchIgnoreInhibited=no
