Public bug reported:

Affects: hal (Ubuntu)
       Severity: Normal
       Priority: (none set)
         Status: Unconfirmed

I don't know why, this problem reappeared in dapper drake. When I close
the lid of my laptop, I can see the hard drive leds flashing and hear
the needle doing constant reads or writes. The CPU goes to 100%.

All this for no apparent reason, as I told gnome-power-manager to not do
anything when I close the lid anyway. How can I find the problem?
