Hello all. I am new to linux, but with the help of these forums actually got Peppermint installed. I am now in need of more assistance. I put Peppermint on my laptop, but can't get it to do nothing when the lid is closed and connected to another monitor. I have xfce power manager and NVidia drivers installed. All I am given for choices are "switch off", "suspend" or "lock screen. Is there something I can do to allow me to have the computer to "do nothing " when I close the lid? Another power manager or a tweak to xfce? FYI it it an ASUS laptop with NVidia 660m.

Try this...Open your terminal and run
Code: [Select]
sudo pluma /etc/systemd/logind.confUnder [Login] add
Code: [Select]
HandleLidSwitch=ignore 
Do not comment, that is, no # in front of the line you add
Save and exit.  It may require a reboot or at least a logout/login.

cheers

You are welcome, sir.   ;)

BTW, to mark an issue solved, go to the first post in the thread and insert [SOLVED] at the end of the title.  I marked this one for you but in the future that's your job  :D
TIA

cheers
