You may try this. Edit /etc/systemd/logind.conf and change HandleLidswitch=ignore

with gnome-tweak-tool you can disable this behavior, yum install gnome-tweak-tool

In fedora 18, like mine, in gnome-tweak-tool, shell menu, laptop lid, when closed, will suspend >>> ON

You can turn it off here. If you're not satisfied or want to further customize it, refer archlinux wiki regarding ACPID
