I am told that this is “expected behavior”. I am sure this is a bug that is called “expected behavior” since Gnome is the ONLY desktop environment on any platform that thinks it’s a good idea for the computer to stay away when an external display is connected.
I wanted systemd to manage suspend activities so I went to ** /etc/systemd/longind.conf** and un-commended the necessary things:
This isn’t working however and I think the reason is because Gnome settings are overriding the sytemd settings.
In Gnome 3.14 I could go to org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power with the configuration-editor app. but in Gnome 3.16 that path(org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power) is no longer valid. I cannot even find anything related to power in dconfig-editor.
Telling Gnome to suspend in the settings menu doesn’t work either.
Any advice on how to solve this would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance
