What greeter are reporters on this bug running? LightDM doesn't control
suspend / the screen. The greeters do that.

  LightDM does not suspend when lid is closed

Status in lightdm package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Until ubuntu 11.10, when I closed the lid in lightdm the computer

  In Ubuntu 12.04, this behavior stopped to work while at the login
  screen (lightdm). When logged in on Unity or Gnome, closing the lid
  suspends normally as expected.

  I think that this is a bug, since all configurations panels, and
  configurations files I found out, was saying that when closing the
  lid, the computer will suspend.

  I've changed from lightdm to gdm using dpkg-reconfigure gdm and with
  gdm when closing the lid the computer suspend normally as expected.

  But I really prefer lightdm, and I would like to make this work as
  worked in lightdm on Ubuntu 11.10.
