No suspend on lid close


Dell Studio 1747 Laptop. Using Mint 12. Using Mint Gnome or Gnome Classic; closing the lid brings on suspend, but if I log into Mint Mate it doesn't suspend when closing lid. I can activate suspend on the shutdown menu fine; so the suspend feature does work.

In that case, have you looked at your power management settings for when you close your lid? In most distros, you can configure what happens when you close the lid, among more of the general power settings.

Cheers,

Josh

Yes. I should have mentioned that it is set to "Suspend" when lid is closed. I just find it odd that it suspends when lid is closed in Mint Gnome and Gnome Classic.

After further looking into this, you might be better off filing a bug report and talking to the devs about this issue, since Mate is a fork at gnome 2, and is new. I would ask to see some logs, but you said that you can get suspend to work, so this would be a bug within Mate itself. Has anyone else experienced this issue?

Not to my knowledge as I posted the problem on Mint's forum and as yet had no reply. Yes I find it a most strange phenomena. Yesterday I forgot I was in Mate; closed the lid; came back some time later to find the laptop still going. So yes I'll file a bug report.

Well for the heck of it, can you post the contents of your /var/log/pm-suspend.log for me, using code tags?

Looks like I've attached the log twice and can't remove one. Thanks for your help.
Edit: Guess I didn't; preview had me confused; doesn't take much.

Open terminal and run "acpi_listen". Then close the lid, and post the output here. Post the file /etc/acpi/handler.sh too.

I know I am repeating myself,but lid close suspends in Mint Gnome and Gnome Classic, but not in Mint Mate. I can however initiate suspend by the "Quit / Suspend" menu in Mate.
