Closing lid suspends laptop with external display

Hi there, I am recently installed manjaro mate and I have a problem when lid si closed, my login screen still appears on laptop display instead of external monitor. Also, when I open lid to login and than close it again, laptop goes to suspend state instead of continue working because there is an external display connected.

Does anybody know how to solve this issue?


AFAICR, Mate is based on gnome so this should solve all your problems:

gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power lid-close-ac-action 'nothing'
gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power lid-close-battery-action 'nothing'

As I'm running KDE nowadays the above is purely from memory and IIRC, this will give you the possibilities:

gsettings range org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power lid-close-ac-action

If I would be wrong on the above man gsettings should help you put further...

:innocent: :wink:
