When an HDMI monitor is plugged in, the system considers it β€œdocked” as if it were plugged into a docking station. As such you need to use:

sudo -H gedit /etc/systemd/logind.conf

Change the line:

#HandleLidSwitchDocked=ignore

to read:

HandleLidSwitchDocked=suspend

Then save the file and reboot.

Note: This is the most common solution and if it doesn’t work we can explore other options.
