Screen keeps locks when lid is closed

I made these and still, screen locks itself.

In power managemnt settings, i both select “turn off screen” when lid is close for ac and battery.

I changed


in /etc/systemd/logind.conf

i restart the system with systemctl restart systemd-logind . and i restart my computer.

then i changed IgnoreLid=true in /etc/UPower/UPower.conf

it still locks when i close the lid.

edit: i changed upower.conf to default (false) and made HandleLidSwitch=ignore to HandleLidSwitch=suspend. it still locks but but i got used to it. I close the laptop lid to suspend the computer and lock the system so no one gets in. If I’m going to enter later, I choose suspend manually.

Hi @unknown222,

Do us a favor and uncomment the HandleLidSwitch line.


Just makes sense to me.


I do not have, or use either Xfce or a laptop, it just made sense to me.

thanks for the tip, but thats not the problem. it didnt work. i uncomment both, restart the systemd-logind, and then restart my computer. still nothing.

I believe that topic has been discussed many times. Have you not found anything relevant?

Yes, i did everything like i mentioned. nothing works.



yep, i have already checked them. still not works.
