Some people (notably me) close the lid because they're carying their
laptop to another place (say, desk to conference room), and would be
quite put out if something went and suspended it for them.   I see no
reason to automatically suspend just because the lid is closed,
especially when Windows doesn't do that out of the box.  I have no
problem with it being an option, but only if it's turned off by default.
