On AC: "when laptop lid is closed:" : "Lock Screen"
On Battery: "when laptop lid is closed:" : "Suspend"

I also attached the corresponding part of xfce4-config. I guess it only 
has the settings I changed from defaults, so that's these two plus 
action on power button is set to ask for action.

It does so when it is configured for this, i.e. with the settings I have 
now when AC power is unplugged.

I permutated the 2x2 possibilities:

	AC	Battery
Suspend	works	works
Lock	not w	not workign

and for completeness: I'm using xscreensaver.
When I don't have the external monitor, the only thing changing in debug 
output is:

> TRACE[xfpm-manager.c:317] xfpm_manager_lid_changed_cb(): LID close event: ((XfpmLidTriggerAction) LID_TRIGGER_LOCK_SCREEN)
> xscreensaver-command: activating and locking.

the xscreensaver-command is not there with 2 monitors.

regards, arian
