Debian 9+ - Laptop suspends on boot and shutdown if lid is closed
I encountered a very irritating problem on a Acer Aspire E1-571 using Debian 9. Starting it or shutting it down with the lid caused the system to suspend instead and wait with an orange blinking light. I found a workaround: Edit /etc/systemd/logind.conf Uncomment and edit the following lines so they end in ignore: HandleSuspendKey=ignore HandleLidSwitch=ignore More details and the source of the solution: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=178047
