View Full Version : [SOLVED] Laptop power management

August 17th, 2011, 05:31 AM
I found the answer to this once before somewhere, but cannot find the thread so I will have to ask again--how do I add "Do Nothing" to the Power Management options in System Settings? I am using Ubuntu 11.04. And I promise I will write it down this time! All you guys are a great help to this newbie! Thanks!

What do you mean by "Do nothing"? As in when you close your laptop lid or when you leave it on for a long time?

I am running a VGA monitor and external keyboard, so I want to be able to close the lid to my laptop without it shutting down or off. I found the answer once, but can't find it now.
