    Ops

    no longer will laptops suspend when the lid is closed and connected to an external display
    I really hope that characteristic will be optional, because my laptop (a Samsung NP535) have the exhaust vents between the keyboard and the lid. When the lid is closed, the vents are blocked. And I have seen other models with the same characteristic.

        I think Plasma 5.4 matching wayland will be the real important improvement.

                You can see the small vent holes, between the lid articulation and the grid (aesthetic) above the keyboard, on the left side.

                The are other notebooks with this characteristic.
