I have checked this out but it is as if the lid close button in not
detected by the system. I have tried using xev and the Fn keys and lid
do not show any input on this model laptop, or in fact on any Toshiba
laptop I have been able to try so far. On my thinkpad, xev shows an
event when I close the lid and press the Fn keys

Anyone have any suggestions? This thread has gone quiet.
Hi
Have you looked at /etc/systemd/logind.conf to adjust the lid options
here?

I had Toshiba notebook in the past and it needed special driver; you
could try toshiba_acpi if it makes any difference.

Paul,

Take a look at:

https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=887629

Basically, backwards compatibility for a number of Toshiba laptops was just
"dropped" during the modular xorg changes, etc. It is very frustrating. I have
the same issues on my Toshiba laptop, but the one that caused the most grief was
the screen brightness function key. The bug contains a couple of suggested
workarounds. I finally just wrote a script to handle writing directly to
/sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0/brightness. I suspect the other function keys
could be handled in a similar manner.
