[SOLVED] Laptop Going to sleep, even when all settings say don't


#1

Hi

SO i am having an issue where my laptop (ASUS G751JY) keeps going to sleep when i close the lid.
Some time i have to close the lid/screen, but still want the laptop to just keep doing what it’s doing.

I checked all the settings i could find in relation to power management and they look to be set correctly.

When I open the lid again, It will come online right away and flash my UEFI ROG logo. I can see that app’s have been suspended and the wired network get’s disconnected. so looks like it’s going into hibernate.

Every ting is fully up to date that i can find.
[lucas@G751 ~]$ cat /etc/lsb-release
DISTRIB_ID=ManjaroLinux
DISTRIB_RELEASE=18.0.2
DISTRIB_CODENAME=Illyria
DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION=“Manjaro Linux”

Kernal: 4.19.16-1 LTS

Desktop: XFCE

TLDR;
Power management issues, laptop going to sleep/hibernate when screen closed.


How to continue task even the lid is closed?
#2

Have you checked on TLP to see what it is doing.

I am not on my Manjaro system but it should be something like,

lee@linux-6y72:~> systemctl status tlp.service
and config is in /etc/default/tlp


#3

What does the xfce-power-manager screen say under the “General” screen?

outputs below but i coudln’t see any thing that was obvious.

Any other options or some thing i am not thinking of?
I don’t think i have installed any thing else that could be altering the power settings.
Is there a way to check the config file for XFce and make sure it matches the Manjaro settings one?


#7

Edit file:

/etc/systemd/logind.conf

change line

#HandleLidSwitch=suspend

for:

HandleLidSwitch=ignore

After:

sudo service systemd-logind restart

You can read more about it if you read the manual

type i console : man 5 logind.conf

That indeed did fix the issue thank you!

Tremendous, that works for Budgie as well. Thanks!
