Edit the file /etc/systemd/logind.conf

change the line:

#HandleLidSwitch=suspend

to:

HandleLidSwitch=ignore

Save the file and reboot.


After changes it should match my system:

$ grep -i lid /etc/systemd/logind.conf
HandleLidSwitch=ignore
#HandleLidSwitchDocked=ignore
#LidSwitchIgnoreInhibited=yes

Also check your Ubuntu power settings for what to do when lid is closed. For myself I have to open lid to access power button so the settings there are irrelevant. Since you can access power button with lid closed it may be significant.
