  1. Advanced settings for when the notebook lid is closed?


    I want to set my notebook pc to lock when I close the lid, but to still keep running at least a few specific apps or if that is not possible, every app.

    I am already aware that I can set the notebook to "do nothing" when I close the lid. I need a setting like that.. except that downloads keep going and the laptop locks and requires a password be entered to use when the lid is opened again.

    Is there a way to do this on Windows 10? Maybe there is a 3rd-party (non-Microsoft) app/program that will enable me to do this?

    Thanks

    :)

  3. Laptop does not shutdown when i click shutdown and close the lid, it sleeps instead.

    Hi Gan,

    This scenario happens when your Power Options is misconfigured. For us to have this isolated, we suggest that you follow these steps:

    • Click on Start.
    • Select Settings.
    • Click on System.
    • Select Power & sleep tab.
    • On the right side, click on Additional power settings.
    • On the left pane, select Choose what closing the lid does.
    • Under Power button and lid settings, click the drop down next to
      When I close the lid.
    • Select Shut down.
    • Click on Save changes button.
    • When you’re ready to make your PC shut down, close your laptop's lid.

    Note: Every time that you will close the lid, your laptop will automatically shut down.

    Let us know if you have other concerns.

  4. Advanced settings for when the notebook lid is closed?

    Laptop keeps restarting after going to sleep (when the lid is closed).

    Hi Craig,

    It's possible that your lid close action is configured to shut down your computer. To make sure your settings are properly configured, you can refer to the steps below:

    • Right-click on the Start menu, then choose Control
      Panel.
    • Change the View by: option on the upper-right-part of the screen to Small icons.
    • Choose Power Options.
    • Select your power plan (e.g. High Performance), then choose Change plan settings.
    • Click Change advanced power settings.
    • Go to Sleep settings, then disable hybrid sleep.
    • Under Power Buttons and Lid, check if
      Sleep is chosen as action when lid is close.
    • Hit Apply and OK.

    If the lid close action is set to Sleep, we suggest checking if your drivers are up-to-date. When it comes to sleep mode issues, the driver related are network, chipset, and BIOS drivers. To update your drivers, you can refer to this

    We look forward to your response.
