Korora 24 Cinnamon (so a Fedora spin) on a Dell Inspiron 1525.
I want to leave the laptop shut but not suspended. This is my media center computer, and it will reside shut even while in use.
I cannot get the system to ignore the lid being closed.
What I've already tried
https://ask.fedoraproject.org/en/question/23589/close-laptop-lid-without-suspend/ talks about using dconf-editor and go down a specific tree, but I don't have that tree. Specifically, I don't have a "Power" item. The tree they talk about is
Org->Gnome->settings-daemon->Plugins->Power and attributes
Tell me, does the dconf-editor remind you of the Windows registry? Why can't this just be a file?
The same URL has a post about how to inhibit systemd from reacting to the lid when a certain process is running. That is not my goal. I want this to be overall.
My problem is basically the same as this guy's: logind.conf not working, closing lid will not suspend laptop, but I'm on Cinnamon and he was on Gnome.
https://ask.fedoraproject.org/en/question/27808/preventing-lid-close-suspension/ This taught me about the /etc/systemd/logind.conf (
man logind.conf) but my changes even after a
systemctl restart systemd-logind.service
I want my laptop to continue normal operations even when the laptop is closed.
The logind.conf change didn't work. My dconf-editor doesn't have the right location (and there's no "add key" like in regedit), and gnome things don't apply to Cinnamon, right?
