I've been fighting with a new KDE/Fedora 30 laptop. The original behaviour upon closing the laptop lid was suspend -> lock screen -> freeze. I've improved this somewhat to ignore, but the laptop's been running pretty warm overnight.

I've modified logind.conf: HandleLidSwitch=suspend, but I can't seem to get this to work.

KDE's Powerdevil manual tells me to select an action for lid switch under "System Settings" -> "Energy Saving" -> "Button events handling", but I see only "When power button pressed".

Any ideas? Many thanks!
