    Closing the lid; do nothing


    I'm trying to keep my laptop screen from turning off when I close the lid. I changed the settings in the Power Options under "When I close the lid, Plugged in" from sleep to Do Nothing my laptop is always plugged in.

    However, despite this, the screen still blacks out when I close the lid. What should I do with it?

    :)

    Do nothing when the lid is closed

    Hi BigTechie

    Rest assured, once you have set your laptop to do nothing when the lid closes, then yes, you can perform a feature update with the lid closed - I do that all the time at night

    Closing the lid; do nothing

    "Only show 2" defaults to "Duplicate these displays" upon closing and reopening laptop lid

    Hi,

    I would suggest to try the following steps and check if it helps




    • Press the Win Key + X to display the
      system menu.

    • Select Control Panel.

    • Select Power Options.

    • On theleft side menu, select the Choose what closing the lid does option.

    • Look in the Power and sleep buttons and lid settings section.

    • Use the drop down menus in the
      When I close the lid section and select Do Nothing for both options.


    I hope the information is helpful and if the error still persists, we’ll be glad to assists you.

    Thank you.
