    Closing the lid isn't toggeling standby anymore after update

    Hello, on my netbook closing the lid only leads to lock screen and not to standby in lubuntu. that happened after the update on 11.10, in 11.04 that worked without problem.
    Also, in 11.10 Ubuntu (unity) closing the lid leads to standby.

    So how can I achieve the same in Lubuntu 11.10?

    How do I get there in Lubuntu? I searched for it, but didn't find it. (Maybe I'm to blind...?)

    Hi,

    From LXTerminal, please run:

    Code:
    sudo leafpad /usr/share/applications/xfce4-power-manager-settings.desktop
    Replace this line:

    Code:
    OnlyShowIn=XFCE;
    with

    Code:
    #OnlyShowIn=XFCE;
    Save, Exit and check your Menu > Preferences

    If Lubuntu 11.04 (just in case someone else will see this thread)

    Code:
    sudo leafpad /usr/share/applications/gnome-power-preferences.desktop
    Replace:
    Code:
    OnlyShowIn=GNOME;XFCE;
    With:
    Code:
    #OnlyShowIn=GNOME;XFCE;

    Indeed the settings in xfce4-power-manager-settings was only lock screen and not standby, so the issue is solved.

    Thank you!

    P.S.:
    Not showing the power settings by default is a bug IMHO, I'll look whether it is filed yet....

    Glad you managed to fix it
    You welcome!

    It's not a bug, it's a work-around
    Before you posted, I was thinking to talk to the developer and hope such options will be available by default with 12.04
    I'm member in Lubuntu Team and we already started to discuss the roadmap of 12.04
