Kali Linux: How to keep your laptop running when you close the lid

I wanted to run some software on my laptop but I wanted to close the lid of my laptop so it would be easier to carry with me but every time when I closed the lid my laptop went to sleep and stopped everything what it was doing =( I didn’t find any settings from Kali Linux GUI but you can do some small command line kung fu:

This setting disable the sleep mode when your laptop charger is plugged in and you close the lid:

gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power lid-close-ac-action nothing

And this one disable the sleep mode when you are running your laptop on battery mode:

gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power lid-close-battery-action nothing

After that your laptop should stay a wake even if you close the lid =)
