[solved] Laptop screen stays off

After updating today which only gave me a new kernel(which I had been ignoring), mkinitcpio-busybox and systemd 192-1, the screen stays off when I open the lid.
Normally when I close the lid, walk into another room and open the lid, the screen is on before I get the lid to 45 degrees. This morning after updating and rebooting to use the new kernel and using it for a while, I shut the lid to carry the laptop to a new location and when I opened the lid the screen stayed off.
I thought the f*&^%$&ng screen had died.
I'm guessing it's something in the systemd update that is suspending or hibernating the system as a keypress and 5-10 sec wait has the screen back on but I don't want that. Can I get a clue on what to undo so I have the usual behaviour back?

Someone beat you to the question by a couple of hours.

Thanks for that. I had just finished editing /etc/systemd/logind.conf and saw you had posted here.
Why does systemd have to change default behaviours? It's not friendly.

What other suprises am I in for? What other default behaviours, that have worked for years, are going to be changed? I'd like a heads up about them please.

If you don't want things to ever change, Slackware might be a better option for you than a very fast paced rolling release like Arch.

With systemd, Linux is seeing more change than it's seen in a long time.
