Ubuntu 7.10 - screen doesnt lock when closing laptop lid


This used to work in Ubuntu 7.04..

Here’s the fix until the feature works again (See bugreport 156226 in launchpad)

You should also enable “blank-screen” in the same section, I noticed the screen doesn’t go blank when the lid is closed without it
