I still don't understand how all the parts of GNOME fit together, so I
can't give a full review of these patches.
But, with these patches, I can successfully prevent my laptop from
sleeping when the lid is closed. Thank you!

Looks okay, but as I said before, I'm no expert on this stuff.

Can you add some comments explaining this patch (and a link to the
* gnu-system.am: Add it.

settings control panel"?
