Is it somehow possible to catch the lid closing event of a notebook and use bindsym to run a command when the lid is closed?

edit: I tried xev, because I thought it might catch some event, but without effect.

This might depend on your hardware and/or configuration whether "LID close" emits a keypress event at all. If xev doesn't show anything you will have to search elsewehere first.

Search this FAQ for "lid close", there should be a few things.
