Fedora 2 Dell D400 screen off on lid close

I'm running Fedora Core 2 on a Dell D400 and it works perfectly. However, whenever I close the lid, the screen turns off and does not resume when I reopen the lid. the computer is still completely active when I close it as I'm capable of using ctrl+alt+del to reboot it, but I have not found a way to reactivate the screen. I've heard somethings about it possibly being ACPI settings, but I'm not sure.

anyone have any ideas?

Its not just turning off the monitor, but going to sleep, and evidently the kernel doesn't support sleep state restore on that model just yet. You can either monkey with acpid settings, or most likely the easiest way, is to disable sleep in BIOS.
