Disable locking on laptop close

  • 0
If your Linux box, like mine, is a laptop. You might want to disable a few power management/security features such as locking when the laptop lid is closed. Can be a bit of pain if you plug in a monitor and close the lid. I have talked to a few people with this problem on older versions of ubuntu.

On versions 6.06 and 6.10 you have to edit a file. You should follow ubuntu-tutorials.com...

For Ubuntu 7.04 - the Feisty Fawn I found the solution in a few seconds. All you have to do is find the power management preferences. There is a link on the screensaver preferences at the bottom. On the tab 'On AC power' there is an option for 'when lid is closed:'. Simply select 'do nothing'. Do the same on ' On Battery power' if you want to.

Dam that was so hard right!.. so heres a screen shot.
