This article explains how to make your laptop go to Suspend when closing the LID.

This can be done via acpid with a hook in /etc/acpi/LID/00000080:

a) with pm-utils:

apk add pm-utils

Contents of /etc/acpi/LID/00000080

#!/bin/sh exec pm-suspend

b) with this raw variant:

Contents of /etc/acpi/LID/00000080

#!/bin/sh echo mem > /sys/power/state


Make the hook executable:

chmod +x /etc/acpi/LID/00000080

And that should be it. Make sure that the acpid daemon is running:

/etc/init.d/acpid start
