Ubuntu 9.10 "Do Nothing" Laptop Lid Closed

For anyone wondering how to force Ubuntu to "Do Nothing" when closing the lid of a laptop.

The option does not exist in Power Management Preferences.

So...

In a terminal (Applications-->Accessories-->Terminal), type: gconf-editor

Navigate to apps-->gnome-power-manager-->buttons and set lid_ac and/or lid_battery to "nothing" (without the quotes).

  1. the brainfuckers designing gnome3 removed that option, again, from the power settings... do they ever learn? ...they should have a gnome-history-101 class before being able to suggest a gnome design... anyway... here's the gconf solution:

    org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power.lid-close-ac-action="nothing"

    org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power.lid-close-battery-action="nothing"
