That's not the precedent set in Debian for some time now. The approach
we take is "sensible defaults", and suspend on lid close (at least
whilst on battery power) is a sensible default. The other issue here is
that if you've told your system how you want it to behave once, it would
be ideal if you didn't have to tell it the same thing again.
