    Hello,

    I have an AAO D150 with Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9.04.

    In System/Preferences/Power Management, I've set the option "When laptop lid is closed" to "Suspend". However my Aspire One isn't suspending when the lid is closed.

    I can see that the LCD light turns off but the computer keeps running.

    Has anyone managed to make the Aspire One auto-suspend when the lid is closed, just like Macbooks? That would be a really neat feature.

    Cheers
    Eduardo

    Mine suspends quite happily; you have set this setting on both AC power and battery power tabs, have you?

    Although I am afraid that I cannot be too helpful here, I have a standard installation of Jaunty and this feature works exactly as it should on my One.

    I did exactly what you did and when I shut the lid, it suspends after a few seconds. Have you tried suspending from the Shutdown dialogue box? Does it work?

    I have this setting in both AC power and battery.

    My suspend is working fine from the menu, as well as Fn-F4. I use it all the time.

    It just doesn't work by closing the lid. I tried to switch them to Hibernate, and it doesn't work either.

    I waited two minutes; it didn't suspend, the fan was running and it was responding to pings, and it came back instantly when I opened the display.

    What's your model? Maybe it doesn't work on the D150?

    No, I haven't opened the case.

    The backlight turns off when I close the lid (I can see it turning off when the lid is almost closed), and it turns on again when I open it. So the hardware seems to be working.

    It would be cool if someone with this same model (D150) replies...

    Cheers!
    Eduardo

    EDIT: It would be cool if someone with the D150 AND Ubuntu Netbook Remix replies :)

    I did some more tests:

    - Closing the lid works fine in Windows. It goes into suspend mode. I still have my Windows partition that I kept for tests.

    - While randomly browsing /var/log/syslog, I saw this:

    Jun 23 17:39:50 netbook kernel: [ 2.816380] ACPI: Power Button (FF) [PWRF]
    Jun 23 17:39:50 netbook kernel: [ 2.816478] input: Power Button (CM) as /devices/LNXSYSTM:00/device:00/PNP0C0C:00/input/input1

    Jun 23 17:39:50 netbook kernel: [ 2.817281] fan PNP0C0B:00: registered as cooling_device0

    There are no other mentions to "Lid" or "LID0" in /var/log/syslog.

    For sake of comparison, could you please post your results of:
    grep -C 3 "Lid" /var/log/syslog

    Thanks!

    My experience on a recently purchased AA1 150 with 160 HDD is exactly as reported by eduardop. Ubuntu 9.04 (not NBR) installed June 15, all available updates applied. As glitches go, this and the lack of a flashing wifi indicator light are pretty minor, and I'm not obsessing about them, although fixes would be welcome.
