I had a T61 with a semi-broken lid switch (it would sometimes randomly
wake up while in my backpack). I found a software workaround: disable
the lid switch as an ACPI wakeup source by doing
echo LID > /proc/acpi/wakeup
=66rom a startup script (/etc/rc.local on my Ubuntu).
IIRC what this does is toggle the state. You can cat /proc/acpi/wakeup
to see whether it's currently enabled or not.
