Default setting for system suspend in Ubuntu install CD

I meant that's the way those operating system's installation media behave
when you boot from them. Not when you boot the newly installed and
functional operating system itself. For example when I used my Windows 7
installation DVD to run chkdsk I could close the lid of my laptop anytime I
wanted and nothing happened. I actually ran chkdsk with the lid closed.
Sorry for the confusion. After installation and booting the operating
system itself the behaviour defaults to suspend to RAM

BTW How do I file a defect report? :)
