Right. hw.acpi.lid_switch_state is the one you want.

I don't think I ever got suspend to work with X and ACPI. Forgot to mention
that. The "almost works" senario was in console mode (though X may be running
it just must not be the active console).

It's a trade-off. I actually like being able to close the lid without
suspending the laptop (a problem with APM). But on the other hand the ability
to suspend when I *want* to do that outweighs that inconvenience.
