Hey there! I’m new to Debian (and relatively new to Linux in general) and have a question for you! I created a small test server using an old netbook- just something to shove in a corner and SSH into so I could practice the command line. Now: whenever I close the lid the netbook goes into sleep mode. I went to the battery icon up top –> power settings, but it only had 2 options available to me (how long to sit there before suspending, and what to do if critically low power). The option to change what to do when the lid closed wasn’t there.
I poked around online and saw someone mention that you could do this manually by typing gconf-editor and navigating to apps—>gnome-power-manager—>buttons. The problem is, apps has several gnome options but gnome-power-manager isn’t one of them!
So I’m at a bit of a loss. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I might go about fixing this? I did a dist-upgrade on Sid just beforehand, and also attempted to update gnome-power-manager and was told it was the newest version, so as far as I know it is at least up to date.
Sorry for the newbish question! Any help would be great.
