I'm running Fedora 15 Gnome on a laptop. I can't seem to find an option to toggle if the laptop goes to sleep when the lid closes. There are certain times where I want to put the laptop away or close it but still have it do some crunching on some long running task

Is there a place to toggle this option?

Gnome Tweak Tool allows you to change that.

Found the option under the Shell menu. Thanks! – TheLQ Aug 18 '11 at 21:57
