System always auto-suspends when the lid is closed

Hello,

I am trying to prevent my laptop (a System76 Lemur Ultra 3) from suspending when the lid is closed.  No matter what I change in the configuration, the laptop always suspends when the lid is closed.  The output of journalctl is as follows after this happens:

Feb 21 04:35:32 hostname systemd-logind[196]: Lid closed.

The first thing I did was to disable systemd's acpi features by setting /etc/systemd/logind.conf as follows:

#  This file is part of systemd.

#  under the terms of the GNU Lesser General Public License as published by

#NAutoVTs=6

#KillUserProcesses=no
#KillOnlyUsers=

#Controllers=

#InhibitDelayMaxSec=5

HandleLidSwitch=ignore
#PowerKeyIgnoreInhibited=no
#SuspendKeyIgnoreInhibited=no
#HibernateKeyIgnoreInhibited=no
#LidSwitchIgnoreInhibited=yes
IdleAction=suspend
IdleActionSec=45min

However, the behavior was the same as before.  I also tried setting

LidSwitchIgnoreInhibited=no

but after reading man 5 logind.conf it seems that this is unnecessary (and it had no effect when I tried it).

acpid is also installed but I have commented out the contents of /etc/acpi/handler.sh as well as all the scripts in /etc/acpi/actions.  I noticed that there is also a UPower daemon which was installed as a dependency and thought that it might be triggering the suspend.  I tried setting

IgnoreLid=true

in /etc/UPower/UPower.conf but this also had no effect.

systemctl list-units has the following output:

Any ideas on what might be causing the system to suspend when the lid is closed would be appreciated.

Thanks

Re: System always auto-suspends when the lid is closed

Hi, you should use [code ][/code ] blocks for readability!

There are laptops that have the ability to en-/disable this in the BIOS.
I don't know if yours does, but you can try (mine does!)

Fixed.

Unfortunately, I need to do it in software.  The ultimate goal is to handle lid/close open with acpid.  What I really want is for the machine only to suspend when on battery power; I had this working before I switched to systemd.  I figure disabling any/all daemons that handle lid close events is the logical first step.

Have you read https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Sy … management ?

Yes, I tried disabling systemd's acpi handlers by setting Handle*=ignore; however, the behavior was still the same as before.

Edit 1: It does appear from the log that system-dlogind is causing the suspend.  However, I would have thought it would be disabled given the logind.conf file in my original post.  At least the wiki and man page seem to say it should.

Edit 2: I confirmed that systemd-logind is still triggering the suspend by temporarily disabling systemd-logind.  This stopped the laptop from going into suspend.

Re: System always auto-suspends when the lid is closed

Just to be sure, you did run

systemctl restart systemd-logind.service

after setting the switch to 'ignore'?

Yes, I restarted systemd.logind after I changed those settings.  There have also been a few reboots since then.

I'm sure I'm just overlooking something obvious somewhere.  I am new to systemd and am probably making some stupid mistake.

Re: System always auto-suspends when the lid is closed

Did you try acpi=off on kernel command line?
Also I have disabled it in a configuration file on my laptop. Try checking my account history where I asked about it

Re: System always auto-suspends when the lid is closed

I don't want to disable acpi altogether.  I actually want to handle lid close/open using acpid (which is how I had things set up before switching to systemd).  I figure preventing systemd from suspending when I close the lid is the logical first step towards that.

Re: System always auto-suspends when the lid is closed

You don't have to disable acpi!
Since you made the complete switch to systemd, why not let systemd handle this kind of events?
Why do you want/need acpid to handle the event?
I personally think things get easier when you let systemd handle this, but of course you can do what you like.)

Yes, it is easier, but my laptop should react differently depending on the power source. With AC power lid-switch locks the screen, in battery mode it suspends. That is impossible with systemd.

Yes you need something like laptop-mode-tools for that, I know systemd will not do that, for now.
But that is not the issue here!, the issue here is that the llid-switch-button' shouldn't be used at all.
For as far as possible I would still recommend systemd to handle your events!, but it's your decision finally!

I was referring to the suggestion of setting acpi=off on the kernel line.  systemd can only run a few preset actions on events like lid close (e.g. suspend, poweroff, ignore, etc.).  I need to run custom scripts.  Also, for some reason I still do not fully understand, it was not working properly.  The log in my original post seems to show that it was initiating the suspend.

You need acpid for that not laptop-mode-tools.  This is exactly what apcid is for --- running user scripts on ACPI events.

Anyway, I finally have this fixed though I still have no idea what the problem was.  I ran out of ideas on how to fix it and #archlinux didn't know either so I went the painful but sure route.  I did full reinstall and reinstalled all programs.  logind was still behaving as this point (not ignoring it's logind.conf file as it seemed to be before the reinstall) after this so I concluded that the packages installed were not the problem at least with their default configs.  After that, I gradually restored the config files I cared about while testing to see if logind still worked correctly.  Contrary, to what I expected it never broke and I was able to restore all modified configs and get correct behavior.

I suspect there was some old out of date config file somewhere that was causing the problem but it's hard to say which one it was.  I could probably figure it out with a bit more experimentation but have already spent enough time fixing this...

In case anyone else needs a similar configuration, the relevant files are as follows.  This sets up the system to lock whenever systemd executes a suspend action.  It also sets up acpid to suspend on lid close.

Make sure you have installed acpid and enabled it to run at startup.

You need acpid for that not laptop-mode-tools.  This is exactly what apcid is for --- running user scripts on ACPI events.
Anyway, I finally have this fixed though I still have no idea what the problem was.

Ah yeah sorry don't know why I typed the tools....
Well, your problem is solved, but you didn't fix it!
Sad, now we never know what the real issue was.(

Re: System always auto-suspends when the lid is closed

Well, I did fix it, I just didn't find out what the problem was... smile

The issue is some config file in /etc though it's hard so say which one.  (Restoring all config files except /etc/logind.conf to their defaults resovles the problem.)  If the problem crops up again, I would suggest backing up all configs in /etc and then restoring the default configs.  After that you can copy back the old configs gradually and see at what point things break.

Reinstalling is not fixing the problem, thats a workaround hmm , but hey thats how I think about, no worries mate!
Well diff logind.conf with the old one and look for differences.)

A workaround would be if I used some ugly hack.  Things are working exactly as they should now with no such hacks in place.

I may not have many posts, but I'm not a noob and have used arch for a long time and do obvious things like diffing my config files before asking for help.  The config file in question is not logind.conf or one for acpid as the logind.conf and acpi configs are the same as before.  The theory when I asked on #archlinux was that there is some other daemon installed which is causing logind to suspend rather than ignore the closed lid as it should.  This is probably due to some legacy config file that was present on my old install and got updated when I installed a fresh system.  To find that file, I'd have to mess around with copying back all my old configs in /etc and seeing when things break.
