BL Headless power button wouldn't work

So, I finally ran bl-user-setup to update the skeleton config from the bunsen-configs package, from a beta beryllium to the most recent 11.5.6-1. I put off things like this. Recent debate on forum led me to decide to do this.

So I reviewed the updated configs. On reviewing xfce4-notifyd.xml I vaguely remember fixing some problems from logs or something, also power button wouldn't shut down my headless computer. Somehow something below fixed it IIRC.

~/.config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml$ diff xfce4-notifyd.xml.20220621-110231.usersetup~ xfce4-notifyd.xml
<   <property name="theme" type="string" value="BL-Lithium"/>
>   <property name="theme" type="string" value="Default"/>
<       <value type="string" value="blueman"/>
<       <value type="string" value="google-chrome"/>
<       <value type="string" value="pnmixer"/>
<       <value type="string" value="thunar"/>
<       <value type="string" value="Thunar"/>
>       <value type="string" value="notify-send"/>
<       <value type="string" value="xfce4-power-manager"/>

I think it was the xfce4-power-manager line which fixed the power button problem. As it's headless, things are different with no gui app... The left diff is my personal config on top of the prior version I used, the right is the new bunsen-configs.

Sorry to be vague. Usually I write notes in config files when I change them but I didn't this time.

Actually, it may have also been something in this xfce4-power-manager.xml file in the same directory:

:~/.config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml$ diff xfce4-power-manager.xml.20220621-110231.usersetup~ xfce4-power-manager.xml9c9
<     <property name="show-tray-icon" type="uint" value="1"/>
>     <property name="show-tray-icon" type="bool" value="true"/>
<     <property name="dpms-on-ac-sleep" type="uint" value="31"/>
<     <property name="blank-on-ac" type="int" value="30"/>
<     <property name="dpms-on-ac-off" type="uint" value="32"/>
<     <property name="lock-screen-suspend-hibernate" type="bool" value="false"/>
<     <property name="logind-handle-lid-switch" type="bool" value="false"/>
<     <property name="brightness-switch-restore-on-exit" type="int" value="1"/>
<     <property name="brightness-switch" type="int" value="0"/>
>     <property name="show-panel-label" type="int" value="1"/>
>     <property name="show-presentation-indicator" type="bool" value="true"/>

Specifically the logind-handle-lid-switch property. I think that was it.

Anyway, I guess I might figure out more after a reboot and seeing the problem again. Sorry to be vague but I guess that's all the bug reporting I have.
