I'm breaking this topic out from my wish list at http://www.vectorlinux.com/forum2/index.php?topic=5347.0
I have been getting help with hibernate and cpufrequency, but this is my top annoyance.
And my original post was a bum steer. The lid switch does not
do nothing. It blanks the screen. I just poked the switch with my finger and had to completely rewrite this post.
I would like the lid switch to shut down the system. In the future I'll want it to hibernate the system (once the system will
hibernate). How do I change this?
