laptop woes
August 03, 2007 06:10AM
I like this distro, but I have an issue with the laptop monitor integration. Maybe I'm just dumb, but I cant find where to change the settings for when I close my laptop lid. I'd like it to turn the monitor off, but it doesn't do this. I can still see light coming from the sides.

Anyone know a fix for this?

Same issue here - Dell Latitude C-840

Does the same in Ubuntu too (haven't checked how to shut off in Ubuntu (dual boot)

The screen does shutoff in the bios when closed.

The LID features are not actually included on Elive by default, maybe next release flirty
