wretched dell 3537 debian 8 laptop lid crash issue

Recently my laptop is all explode on closing the lid.

It turns out this is fixable, and the answers were on various stack exchange sites.

First fix the actual problem:
Open the file /etc/systemd/logind.conf as root.

Find this: HandleLidSwitch

If it's commented, uncomment and change the value to ignore. The line after editing should be:


And then get the bloody thing to notice without having to reboot:

sudo systemctl stop systemd-logind && sudo systemctl start systemd-logind
