Only Blank with Closed Lid - Switch

by trsk

Add a switch allowing you to select whether closing the laptop lid should trigger your chosen action or just blank the screen. The default Gnome Shell action is to suspend when the lid is closed. (You can use Gnome-Tweak-Tool to customise this behaviour). Useful when your PC is playing music or calculating/downloading something, but you have to (briefly) close the lid and do not want to pause the current operation. Please disable and re-enable this extension whenever you change its or Gnome-Tweak-Tool's settings. Please note: GS 3.6 no longer handles the lid switch, so this extension doesn't have the desired effect in 3.6; see https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=687277 ; the same holds for GS 3.8.
