From: Closing lid problem


To make Ubuntu do nothing when laptop lid is closed: Open the /etc/systemd/logind.conf file in a text editor as root, for example

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

Add a line HandleLidSwitch=ignore

Restart the systemd daemon with this command:

sudo service systemd-logind restart

If that didn’t work set the following

IgnoreLid=true in /etc/UPower/UPower.conf

⇧ Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt --fix-broken install'- Conflict in linux-image Should I use MBR or GPT when I intend to use both Ubuntu and Windows?  â‡©
