Close lid => Turn Off doesn't works


I want my laptop to turn off when I close lid so I selected the appropriate option in KDE settings. Sadly it doesn’t occurs. It doesn’t even hibernate or lock the machine.

When I close the lid, there is a blinking led indicator, which means the laptop is in standby mode.
When I open the lid, the screen is black and everything crashed. I am just able to see and move the mouse (on a black screen…).

The result of “sudo journalctl” is : HERE

Here is the journalctl log when, in KDE settings, I chose the suspens system when the lid is closed.
Everything works fine in this situation.

Do you have any idea please ?
It’s not related to hardware because it works on other distro.

Thank you.

Check /etc/systemd/logind.conf

grep "Lid" /etc/systemd/logind.conf

Also what is reported by the following command?


For more info

man logind.conf

I just find the solution thanks to your comments. Seems not logic to me however…
In logind.conf file I juste edited “#HandleLidSwitch=suspend” to “HandleLidSwitch=ignore”.
I don’t know how this previously commented line can have any affect but apparently it has some.

The commented lines just reflect the default settings for the given options. By uncommentating and changing the relevant option you changed the behaviour.

So all good now?

Yes sir. Everything is fine now. Thank you a lot for your help.
Solve my problem and learnt something. I always thought that commented lines are purely ignored…
It’s still weird that KDE do not overwrite these settings. Maybe the default settings in the file should be “ignore” in order to let user pick whatever he want in KDE settings.

Have a good day sir.

They are ignored. They are listed explicitly to help administrators see the default settings.

The KDE utility only changes user-specific settings. Not system-wide settings (that administrators control).
