    Thank you so much. Windows 7 crashed and I always listened to music overnight and now I can do it thank to you. It actually works.

    Just want to comment for any future viewers (I’m viewing this rather late myself):

    This also works in linux mint. I tested this in linux mint 11. It may just work on most gnome set up. Other methods to making this happen consisted of things I would rather not do compared to this.

    Just what I was looking for as I am using my laptop as XBMC htpc connected to a LCD TV, but I have some trouble with this.

    I am running Linux Mint 11 and have changed the gconf-editor lid_ac to “nothing” and restarted but in my Power Management the action is still “Blank screen” and that is unfortunately what closing the lid still does. It blanks both laptop and TV screens, I am only interested in the laptop screen is shut off.

    Hope you have a solution here.
