  Laptop does not suspend on lid close when external display is

Status in gnome-settings-daemon package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I've configured my laptop to suspend when the lid is closed (in gnome-
  control-center's Power panel). It works ok as long as there is no
  external display connected. However when I connect my external LCD,
  laptop IS NOT suspended (external display is turned off though).

  I've done some research and found out that problem is in gnome-
  settings-daemon package: There is code in gsd-power-manager.c in
  do_lid_closed_action function which checks whether there are any
  active external outputs and if it finds any, it prevents suspending. I
  believe that in this case we should honor what's set in gnome-control-
  center and suspend. Patch which removes this logic is attached.
