A little question!

Hi again.

Some of you have probably seen som of the difficulties I have/had with configuring my systems!
I have done som arch installs to compare with archlabs and there are many configurations that archlabs have done that you first do not notice and that are really well done and helpful! I am just going to mention one here. Laptop suspend/hibernate. In arch you have to install gnome to get that to work properly out of the box. But is there anybody who likes gnome really? I don’t anyway. Xfce is ok, if you mix it with openbox it becomes better.
Well how have you configured laptop lid-close to suspend in archlabs? On macbook pro this is often problematic but have always worked out of the box with archlabs.

Archlabs is here to stay!

It’s handled by logind a part of systemd, I think Arch disables this by default. Check out /etc/systemd/logind.conf

HandleSuspendKey=ignore
HandleHibernateKey=ignore
HandleLidSwitch=suspend

Cheers

I looked at my logind in archlabs and every option is commented out. I did the same on arch but still no suspend.

When I followed your instructions it worked!
Thanks!
