    Exclamation laptop boots, read lid as closed, and suspends

    My laptop has decided, without intervention that I can think of, that it should read it's lid as always being closed. So when I boot up and log in, it loads up the power manager, displays a message that the lid is closed and suspends.

    Nothing I've been able to do (e.g., passing noacpi and noapm to the kernel at boot) has arrested the process, but I don't think it's a hardware problem because if it was wouldn't the screen never come on? Also, I can boot into failsafe mode and have command line use all day long without problem.

    So anyone know how to change things to prevent this from happening, particularly changes I can make from the command line? The power settings (i.e., the rule that says to suspend when the lid is closed) have to be stored somewhere. If I can edit that to keep it from suspending, at least I'd be able to use the box.

    Thanks.

    I have no way to try this but, it couldn't hurt to give it a shot:

    Code:
    sudo chmod -rx /etc/acpi/lid.sh
    Reverse it by changing -rx to +rx.
    Don't try to make something "fast" until you are able to quantify "slow".

    Thanks, vor, but not joy. I chmod'ed /etc/acpi/lid.sh and /etc/apm/apmd_proxy, but still get the same results.

    I'm about ready to bag it and reinstall Gutsy. I never had problems with any of this power management stuff before going to Hardy.

    Having the same problem running Kubuntu Hardy on an HP Pavillion ze4900. It happens whenever X server is restarted... I can work around it by changing the action from suspend to do nothing.
