So on a fresh install of Fedora21, when it gets passed the "can't configure the clock" error and finally boots, when I accidentally close the lid on my laptop it makes the system completely lock up and I have to hold down the power button to get it to reboot. 1. what good is this feature 2. how can i turn it off.

I tried this but it didn't work, but maybe that's because it is for Fedora 20.

So I guess what I want is to make it so I can close my lid (without powering down) and then open it later and be able to keep using it from where it was. What I mean is, when I use windows on a laptop, I can just close it, and then later open it and be able to keep working on the same spreadsheet that I had open when I closed it without having to restart the computer with the power button without holding it down for 5 seconds and rebooting and I wonder if there's a way to make Fedora do that too.
