GnomePower Manager Lost "do nothing" option in 2.28?

So call me crazy but I remember pretty clearly that there used to be a "do nothing" option available in the Gnome Power Manager as a choice for what to do when the laptop lid is closed. As you can see I no longer have such an option -

Any ideas why/if I can get it back? I like to leave my laptop sit closed when I have it hooked into my TV.

I checked it out on GNOME 2.26 on my laptop yesterday. There is a "do nothing" option available in the Power Manager.

May be in GNOME 2.28, they have removed it !!
