  [HP, Dell notebooks] suspends on closed lid, does not recognized
  external monitors/dock

Status in systemd package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  Using systemd as init system on a HP zbook15 notebook having 2 external monitors connected using a docking station and starting with lid closed the system goes to sleep after successfully booting and starting lightdm greeter. Sometimes there's enough time to enter username and password but system goes to sleep every time after a few seconds.
  The system can be woken up and used after this happens but it will not let me shutdown later.

  The problem is just present in docked situation starting with closed
  lid using systemd a init system.

  If notebook is used in non-docked situation with open lid and systemd
  the problem does not occur.

  Workaround: A switch back to upstart as init system resolves the
