    Laptop Lid Switch not working in 8

    Hardy on Latitude D610

    Just upgraded to 8 and now my laptop lid switch does not work properly any longer. The screen switches to terminal and list, twice, that the network card has been halted. It then stay there and does not power the computer or the screen down?

    Help

    Hmmn sounds more like you are having issues with getting your pc to suspend at all rather than a problem with the switch.

    From what you've described, I'd say the switch is being detected, and the computer is trying to suspend, but something is failing.

    Is this a fresh install? I know a lot of people had issues with suspend on the kernel that shipped with 8.04, but there have been a few updates since then. Try running the update manager if you are not up to date.

    If that isn't it, have a look here:

    have a look at the debugging bit, hope that helps

    I upgraded yesterday from Ubuntu 7.10, the online auto upgrade. Everything was working great before the upgrade???
