I have edited the file /etc/systemd/logind.conf and change the line




After that I restarted system-login service (by executing the command systemctl restart systemd-logind.service) AND rebooting the system. I have checked that the changes is correct. I'm using a Lenovo Thinkpad T430.

The problem is that the computer still suspend when I close the lid, not going into hibernation.

Have you tested on console ?, or in some window manager ? , windows manager (gnome or kde) also can set lid switch

I should have tested the obvious option first. I didn't do it because it hasn't worked on Ubuntu for several years.

I only needed to set the When laptop lid is closed option to hibernate in Xfce's power manager. Works without problems.
