View Full Version : [ubuntu] Options when closing laptop lid

I wonder why the "Do Nothing" option when closing the laptop lid has disappeared from Ubuntu v10.

We use Ubuntu for a network of netbooks for different artworks and have relied on this feature to keep our screens alive (when running a vga data projector), in tight spaces that don't allow for the netbook lids to be open.

Have you tried configuring the projector as an external screen? That way only your internal screen should be blanked.
