My Acer Aspire One D250, kept going into suspend every minute or so, whenever I was not logged in to a window manager. I run Debian testing and had my first real interaction with systemd (except for systemctl).

Turns out there are some settings in /etc/systemd/logind.conf that configures some of the power management features.

First I asked systemd to ignore everything but the power button, and as I somewhat expected this didn't do the trick. Then I set the IdleActionSec to the actual amount of second (1800), that didn't work either. In the end completely disabling idling, stopped the suspend.
