On my ThinkPad x201, I've been having problems where the computer will shutdown once it has been suspended to RAM, so I disabled the auto-suspend when the lid is closed by editing /etc/systemd/logind.conf:


This works fine, however, when running tlp, my computer starts to suspend again. I have looked through the arch wiki and the documentation, but still haven't found a flag that controls this.

Is there any way to control tlp's override of the auto-suspend feature when laptop lids are closed?


Turns out that it was tp_smapi's fault! I uninstalled it, and I can successfully suspend to RAM (even with TLP)
