Action to take when the user closes the lid

When this policy is set, it specifies the action that Google Chrome OS takes when the user closes the device's lid.

When this policy is unset, the default action is taken, which is suspend.

If the action is suspend, Google Chrome OS can separately be configured to either lock or not lock the screen before suspending.
