I’m not sure what’s causing the first problem but for your second one you can type:

gksu gedit /etc/systemd/logind.conf

Look for these two lines and change them to look like this:

HandleLidSwitch=ignore
HandleLidSwitchDocked=ignore

These should be the defaults anyway but remove the # in front of them if it’s there. Save the file and reboot.

From now on when you close the lid hopefully it doesn’t suspend as you desire. If not we have to look elsewhere….
