I have a laptop which i am using temporarily as a test server. It is permanently plugged in. It is running CentOS 6, command line only. In the past, I could close the lid, thereby turning off the display, but not turning off the machine. It remained running indefinitely.
A recent update (this past week) changed that behavior. Now, when I
close the lid, the laptop turns itself off within an hour.
A google search talks about tools like “upower” and apcitool, but a
“yum search” does not locate them.
Is there a way to revert back to the previous behavior?
