Proxmox on laptop

Not sure if this is the appropriate place to ask this, so please move or delete if not. I’m planning to install Proxmox to an old I7 laptop and would like to be able to keep the lid closed except when I’m working directly on it. However, closing the lid shuts down or suspends the system. Is there a setting I can do in Proxmox to keep the system running on lid close?
Thanks!

Please disregard, found my answer.

If you need the info, it’s actually pretty simple. Open /etc/systemd/logind.conf and make sure the following is set:

HandleLidSwitch=ignore
LidSwitchIgnoreInhibited=no

Then run service systemd-logind restart.
