Now that I managed to get my former question solved, this brings up a new one for me: When I close my laptop it goes into standby mode.
While usually this is a good thing, at times I abuse my laptop as a music player when being on the move and would like to not have it to go to standby mode when I put it into my bag. I’ve found the inhibit applet from gnome, unfortunately that only seems to hinder the laptop to go to standby when unused for a certain time, it does not hinder it go to standby when closing the laptop display.
Is anyone aware of a similar applet that would enable me to click and toggle whether it should standby on closing the laptop display or not?

That probably depends on what is listening on the acpi events. For me it’s
acpid, so the config files are in
/etc/acpi. I think there’s something called
gnome-power-manager which takes care of a similar task if you are running gnome.
