How do I stop my laptop from suspending?


Hi all,

I have an older laptop that I've setup as a home server. Whenever I close the lid, it suspends/hibernates. I want it to stay in normal operating mode when I close the lid. I'm a bit of a newbie, so I have no idea how to modify power management...

I am running Mandrake 10.1 (KDE mostly).

Your help is much appreciated!

Thanks!
Erik
