I want my laptop to respond as follows whenever the lid is closed:

  • Docking - ignore
  • Connecting external power - lock
  • Otherwise - suspend-then-resume

In my sleep.conf I have:


Does the "lid closed" event reoccur each time when changing docking or external power connections?

Or in other words, what happens given the following events:

  1. External power is connected
  2. The lid is closed
  3. External power is disconnected

Would the non-external-power HandleLidSwitch action then trigger?

If not, is there a way to get my laptop to suspend-then-hibernate given the above events?
