In GNOME 3.0, we're defaulting to suspending the computer when the user shuts the lid, and not providing any preferences combobox to change this. This is what the UI designers for GNOME 3.0 want, and is probably a step in the right direction. We really can't keep working around bugs in the kernel with extra UI controls.
If this cannot be disabled easily, this is a horrible misfeature. When at my laptop I often leave a streaming music station running, while closing the lid. If the machine were then automatically suspended, said music could no longer play. Inane.
