How to stop your CR48 from going into suspend on lid close
I’ve been annoyed by the default going to sleep behavior on lid close in ChromeOS since day one. As I’ve started using it more as my day-to-day system largely thanks to my new Arch Linux chroot, it’s become more of an annoyance. So I finally figured this one out. It’s actually really easy. Assuming you have already rooted your device, just get a terminal with Ctrl+Alt+T, type “shell” to get a shell, then:
sudo initctl stop powerm
And that’s it. I added that line to my .bashrc so I don’t have to remember to stop that daemon every time I reboot.
