           Summary: acpi lid close script is no good for kde
           Product: Ubuntu
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: other
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: acpi-support
        AssignedTo: mjg59 at codon.org.uk
        ReportedBy: jools at oxfordinspire.co.uk

the acpi screenblanking screens rely on xscreensaver running. Kde does not use xscreensaver by default so  
xscreensaver-command does not work (And as a side effect, when you open the lid of the laptop x.org is using all cpu..  
when the xscreensaver-command calls are removed this doesnt happen)..  
the script needs to check to see if xscreensaver is running. if not then it should perhaps try to lock the screen the  
kde way.  
here are the changes which make /etc/acpi/lid.sh work on a kde system (this is with the removal of 
xscreensaver-command stuff. you will have to sort out how to detect what system is running etc) 
first /etc/acpi/lid.sh 
. /usr/share/acpi-support/power-funcs  
[ -x /etc/acpi/local/lid.sh.pre ] && /etc/acpi/local/lid.sh.pre  
grep -q closed /proc/acpi/button/lid/*/state  
if [ $? = 0 ]  
        . /usr/share/acpi-support/screenblank  
[ -x /etc/acpi/local/lid.sh.post ] && /etc/acpi/local/lid.sh.post 
and here is /usr/share/acpi-support/screenblank 
su $user -c "(kdesktop_lock --forcelock --blank)" 
xset dpms force off
