  2. Sleep mode when lid is closed

    When I close the lid of my Lenovo laptop with Windows 7, the computer doesn NOT go to sleep. The settings in Control Panel are correct: When I Close The Lid I have put SLEEP for battery and plugged in mode. How can I get it to go back to working normally
    and putting my laptop to sleep mode when I close the lid? I already had Windows 7 re-installed, but the problem is still there. Thank you Closing lid does NOT put pc to sleep mode. :)

    Closing the lid will only enter into sleep by chance

    I have a thinkpad X1 carbon, and upgraded to Windows 10.

    Everything worked fine including sleep.

    Suddenly one day ( well I can't really recall which day, just recently), I noticed that when I close the lid, it won't enter into sleep.

    If I open the lid, and close the lid again in short time, it will enter into sleep then.

    I then started testing, and close and open close and open.

    Generally, the behaviour is like this:

    1. If I close the lid, 9 out of 10 will not sleep, and there's some chance that it will sleep.

    2. If I close the lid (no sleep), open the lid again, and close the lid again in shor time, 9 out of 10 it will sleep at the second close.

    3. If I close the lid (no sleep), open the lid, and do some operation (browsing etc), then close the lid, it will not sleep (see step 1)

    4. If I change the settings to : close the lid then hibernate, then it works everytime, closing the lid will hibernate the computer.

    5. In battery mode, the sleep works when lid is closed, only in plugged-in mode, the sleep doesn't work!

    My attempts:

    1. I tried to see the system event log, and found that, if I close the lid, and the comuter is not in sleep mode, it enters into Away mode. So it did detect the closing action, and tried to do something, but decided to go to away rather than sleep, which
    is really rediculous.

    2. I tried to seach on the forum, and found some media sharing stuff, I tried all settings, including disable media sharing, they didn't solve my problem.

    3. I also tried to use "powercfg -requests" in cmd window and found there are none applications that is preventing the system from entering into sleep.

    4. I tried to set every single power settings of plugged-in mode to be as same as "battery" mode, no use. Battery still works and plugged in mode still not working most of the time.

    5. System restore is not an option because I disabled system restore (harddisk is too small for system restore).

    Any advice will be appreciated.

    Thanks.

  4. Closing lid does NOT put pc to sleep mode.

    Closing the lid does not put pc into sleep mode.

    Lately we have noticed that when we wake up our Dell laptop (by opening the lid), it goes directly to the Desktop, without requiring a sign-in. Today I returned from an errand to find the cooling fan loudly whirring (with the lid closed). I opened the lid
    and, again, went directly to the Desktop. I then right clicked Start and chose Sleep, whereupon the screen went black, the backlit keys went out, and the cooling fan stopped. I closed the lid, reopened it a few minutes later, and was then required to sign
    in.

    It seems that the action of closing the lid is NOT putting the computer into Sleep mode.

    I have verified (via Control Panel and Settings) that it is supposed to go to Sleep mode. Can anyone help us to correct this problem--without having to take it to a computer repair shop?
