I have configured in settings to trigger suspend when laptop lid is closed. It does not work that way. It used to work recently.

Could this be caused by partial upgrade?

If I use gnome-power-manager, the function works fine.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. We are sorry that we do not always have the capacity to look at all reported bugs in a timely manner. Since you reported this against a development version of Xubuntu Karmic, Xubuntu 9.10 has had many changes since that time you reported the bug and your problem may have been fixed with some of the updates. Could you verify if this does still exist? If you can test it, and it is still an issue, we would appreciate if you could upload updated logs by running apport-collect 457129.

I was testing the suspend option when laptop lid is closed. When I closed my laptop lid, waited a few seconds, and reopened it, the display of my current open applications appeared. I did not have to press a button to bring laptop out of suspend mode. Tried several more times, still no suspend mode. The option "when laptop lid is closed" in the xfce4 power manager was set to "suspend".

and I did it with an external monitor connected to my Laptop, selected suspend when I close my lid and closed my lid but the system was wide awake in my external display and opening the lid did not make any difference confirmed the issue.

I will close this old report.

Please open a new one if you still encounter the bug in a currently supported X/Ubuntu release. Thanks.
