Before I swapped my old HDD for an SSD, I had an installation of Antergos (up-to-date). I use an external monitor and not my laptop monitor. I had set the config file to ignore the lid switch. I was able to open the lid, press the power button and then close the lid without any issues. I could work right away with the lid down and the external monitor running.
When I installed the SSD, I ran a clean install using the same version I had used before (latest from the Antergos website), and with the config file settings just as before the monitor stays on, but I get weird activity with my cursor!
When I close the lid, the cursor seems to “quiver” for lack of a better word. When I move the cursor around using a mouse, it is like I am clicking and dragging as I begin to highlight areas instead of simply passing over them. I have to prop the lid of the laptop open just enough to stop the behavior. However, that doesn’t really solve the problem of being able to keep the lid shut.
Since it seems that the settings for the switch and monitor are correct, is there another setting for using a mouse that I might be unaware of? It’s the only thing that doesn’t seem to work right. (I know, if this is my biggest problem, I should stop obsessing about it.)
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
