Chromebooks Getting New Power Management Settings to Control Lid/Idle Behaviors

Control the idle and lid-closed power management behavior

After teasing Chromebook owners with the revamp of the sign-in and lock screens of Google’s Chrome OS operating system, Chromium evangelist François Beaufort shared a new upcoming feature that resides in the Chrome Canary channel.

The developer shared today on his Google+ page a screenshot of what it would appear to be new Power settings for controlling the power management behavior when the lid is closed and when your Chromebook computer is idle. For example, you can finally choose to keep your Chromebook awake when the lid is closed, or just set it to go to sleep, which is currently the default action.
