Ubuntu – Closing lid freezes laptop


Closing the lid on my Dell Studio 15 which is running Ubuntu 10.04 freezes the screen. This is a new problem in Ubuntu 10.04 which did not exist in 9.10

I have tried playing with all the settings in System->Preferences->Screensaver but nothing seems to make any difference. (please note the Power Management settings are accessible from here so I have tried those too.)

I don't need hibernate or suspend. I just want to be able to close the lid, and then open it and still have a working laptop.

Is their a settings somewhere that will make Ubuntu ignore the lid closing?

I solved this by changing to the closed source FLGRX driver.
