[INFO]Laptop numlock and suspend when lid is closed solution (XFCE)

Post by TheWanderer » Thu Jan 11, 2018 8:55 pm

My laptop has an indicator LED which was light even if the numlock was set to off as you suggested in your article. I found the solution, just have to edit in the

Code: Select all

/etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf
file the following line:

Code: Select all

greeter-setup-script=/usr/bin/numlockx on
to

Code: Select all

greeter-setup-script=/usr/bin/numlockx off
and the indicator LED not light up, just if the numlock is pressed and it's on.

The other what I found was the laptop didn't suspend when I closed the lid. The solution was to edit in the

Code: Select all

xfce4-settings-editor
under the

Code: Select all

xfce4-power-manager
section

Code: Select all

logind-handle-lid-switch
to false.

These settings solved my issues.
