Hallo, Henrique,

Du meintest am 20.06.11:

Last testing results with Ubuntu 11.04:

Energy option "when closing the lid" is set to "darken the screen" (I've  
tried to translate the german messages).

And when I close the lid (I've simulated it with a toothpick - unused)  
then the screen is immediately switched off: that's the behaviour I  

The machine doesn't stop the hard disk, and it doesn't switch off the  
NIC; that's also the wanted reaction.

Looks like the thinkpad module works well, only the inplemention in some  
distributions and distribution versions may make problems.

Viele Gruesse!
