Right click on the Power Manager (battery icon) on your task bar (often found 
at the bottom right in KDE) and select Restore. At the bottom of that 
dialogue in the 'When Laptop Lid Closed' select 'Do Nothing'.

If you want to suspend on the lid closing check that option but deselect 'Lock 
screen on resume' in the 'general settings' at the top of the same dialogue.

Hope this helps.
