Device model: HP Elite x2 1012 G1 (I have three of these). I have Gnome Tweaks running on all three. I have the laptop “not suspend” when closing the lid on all three as well.
On one of these devices, when I close the lid, the screen fails to turn off. In fact, it blinks once (as if it turns off for a split second), and then the screen stays on. The screen stays on unless I press/click to “suspend.” Sometimes the screen desktop will go black, however, the screen backlight is still lit (and I can see the cursor).
HOWEVER, if I have an external monitor connected, and I close the lid, the lid will turn off, and the external screen will be the primary (as expected)
I have three, exact same models of this tablet, all running Fedora. The other two laptop/tablets will normally turn off the screen when I “close the lid” (no external monitor either). All three devices have the following settings for “screen lock”:
- List item Blank screen delay: 15 mnutes
- List item Automatic screen lock: on
- List item Automatic screen lock delay “screen turns off”
- List item Show notifications on lock screen: on
I’ve tried closing the lid in Windows, and the screen turns off with no issue. So, I know for fact it is not a hardware issue.
How can I fix it so that the screen turns off when the laptop/tablet lid is closed? How can I see if it’s a driver issue and if I can reinstall the display or sensor drivers? Or, how can I reset all my settings to default (hoping to find the culprit setting that’s causing this)? Or, what’s the easiest way to reinstall fedora?
