"You have a laptop not connected to an external display and configured
in settings to suspend on lid close (battery/ac) but it doesn't suspend
when you close the lid? Suspending through the menu works though and
settings HandleLidSwitchDocked=suspend makes it suspend on lid close"

Yes, that's an absolutely correct summary of the problem and the
conditions under which it occurs.

I've now also tested from a vt login (Ctrl-Alt-F1) and again the system
doesn't suspend on lid closed unless HandleLidSwitchDocked=suspend is

I note that I didn't have to log in when resuming the vt, whereas using
the gui I need to go through the normal graphical greeter/login. When I
closed the vt and returned to the Unity gui after this test, the Unity
gui presented me with the greeter/login. I expect to see this login page
and have to enter my password after a suspend, this is consistent with
my settings.

  Notebook doesn't suspend when lid is closed after update to 16.04

Status in systemd package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  My notebook does not suspend after upgrading from 15.10 to 16.04.

  According to system settings the notebook should suspend when lid is
  closed but actually this does not happen. Instead it continues to run
  as if nothing had happened.

  With the previous versions of ubuntu (14.04-15.10) everything worked

  My System: HP Pavilion dv7.
