Xfce on Fedora/Arch continues to display while laptop lid is closed


I'm sure this question has been asked many times before, but I'm having an issue on Fedora/Arch based distros. When I close my laptop lid, the display does not actually turn off. so the panel and whatnot do not transfer over to my external display. and its like the laptop screen is still on. You can see in the workspace switcher that the display is still extended.

Its weird how by default this works correctly on Debian based distros. I'm not sure what Debain distros have pre configured can anyone help me with this?

Below are some outputs in which you may find useful.

Re: Xfce on Fedora/Arch continues to display while laptop lid is closed

not sure if help, but... i use Xubuntu and some time ago i need opposite change: change default (in Xubuntu) lid-close=display_off_and_move_all_to_external to lid-close=keep_display_and_nothing_move, and in "/etc/UPower/UPower.conf" i change "IgnoreLid=false" to "IgnoreLid=true", so if your distro use UPower try look at this setting ;-)
