What are you expecting the machine to do when you close the lid ?

On my HP nx6320, Fedora defaults to doing a suspend on lid close. Since 
suspend/resume has not been working reliably over time {and I can't 
afford to lose information}, I turn this off:

system|preferences|system|power management

on ac power     |actions|when laptop lid is closed=blank screen
on battery power|actions|when laptop lid is closed=blank screen
