First, I searched for a solution before I posted and didn't find anything that quite fit. Second, I am aware of logind.conf and upower.conf (along with the dconf keys for the power plugin).

I would like to be able to configure the power management such that: 1)when on ac power: closing the lid simply turns off the screen, and
2)when on battery: closing the lid causes the system to enter hybrid-suspend

This problem is way too simple for it to not be something I can simply configure.

Have a look at dconf (or dconf-editor if you prefer a GUI). Under /org/gnome/settings-daemon/plugins/power you should find some setting for that.

I mentioned in the preface to my question that I'd already looked in gsettings. Here's the list: idle-brightness power-button-action priority idle-dim sleep-inactive-ac-type sleep-inactive-battery-timeout sleep-inactive-battery-type sleep-inactive-ac-timeout ambient-enabled active

The problem with those is the state is only based on active/inactive and activity timeout. It doesn't offer any help if it doesn't contain state info of both the lid and power state.

What is the problem? Your question does not well describe it, IMHO. What is supposed to be behind When on:?

I hope this makes the problem clearer.

Yes, it does!

So, how about:

org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power sleep-inactive-ac-type  == nothing
org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power sleep-inactive-battery-type == suspend


(description of that key: The type of sleeping that should be performed when the computer is inactive.)
