how to suspend on lid close in Fedora 26

I freshly installed Fedora 26 and I'm trying to get things set up the way I want them. So, I go to close the lid and it keeps running as though I never closed it (screen goes black, though).

Then I changed /etc/systemd/login.confwith root privileges. Specifically, I decommented HandleLidSwitch=suspend , saved the change, and then restarted the service with systemctl restart systemd-logind.service. Still no suspend on closing the lid.

I restarted my computer to see if that would work (didn't work). Then I tried turning the "Don't suspend on lid close" setting to off in gnome-tweak-tool and restarted (also didn't work).

The question is, what's left to try? And how can I go about collecting helpful information?

Do you, by any chance, have external screen plugged it? https://ask.fedoraproject.org/en/ques...

What happens if you execute systemctl suspend in terminal?

Is Gnome Tweak Tool made by the main Gnome 3 team? I've never really liked it, the extension manager has always been buggy.

while running journalctl -f and closing the lid can you see the lid close event ?

Aug 02 20:13:07 localhost systemd-logind[28981]: Lid closed.  
Aug 02 20:13:07 localhost systemd-logind[28981]: Suspending...

Also look in the Power Management tools to see that are the action to take on each event and while running on AC/Plugged or DC/Battery.

Hi, im not OP, but I tried to run journalctl -f and I didnt have a lid close event. then, I edited login.conf and restart it with systemctl restart systemd-logind.service. After that, I had a closed lid event, but no suspend, until I restart my computer. After restarting, I had no closed lid event
