    Does Lid Close Affect Sleep/Hibernate Power Options?


    hey everyone, i have a question about power options and lid close in regards to an issue i faced. my pc power options are set to never sleep on AC/DC, hibernate after 1 hour on AC/DC and do nothing on close lid. last time i closed lid and PC didnt hibernate after the hour. does closing the lid and keeping it closed with PC on affect the power options?

    :)

    Closing lid does not put computer to sleep

    Know this sounds a bit goofy, but on my Surface Pro 3, I have to use Hibernate instead. If I use Sleep with close lid, I can "peek" under the lid just enough and still see the screen on! Hibernate works, for me.

  3. Win 10 - computer won't lock or sleep when lid is closed

    Hi Shari,

    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Communities.

    Please follow the methods mentioned below:

    Method 1: Follow the steps:


    • Press Windows Key + X.

    • Select on Control Panel.

    • Click on Power Options. On the left, click on "Choose what closing the lid does". Click on the drop down menu for "When I close the lid" and choose "Sleep" or "Hibernate.

    Method 2: I suggest you to run in-built Power troubleshooter and check. Follow the steps:

    • Press Windows Key + X.
    • Click on Control Panel.
    • Select Troubleshooting on the left pane, click on
      View All.
    • Click on Power to run the troubleshooter.

    Method 3: If the above method doesn’t help, I would suggest you to
    reset and restore all of the default Power Plans back with their default settings. Follow the steps.

    • Press Windows Key + X.
    • Select Command Prompt (Admin).
    • At the command prompt, type powercfg -restoredefaultschemes, and then press
      ENTER.
    • At the command prompt, type exit to exit the Command Prompt window.
    • Restart the computer and check with the issue.
    Let us know if the issue is resolved or if you require further assistance.

  4. Does Lid Close Affect Sleep/Hibernate Power Options?

    Windows 10 Lock Screen When Closed Lid without sleep or hibernate.

    HI!

    I don't know how, why or exactly when it happend.

    At start, when I closed my laptop lid, it locked the screen without sleep or hibernate, but today when I do that it just keep unlocked and running.

    In the power config only has the options of "Do nothing", "Shutdown", "Hibernate" and "Sleep". I always let him on "Do Nothing" and it always locked the screen without sleep or hibernat, as I want it to do! But now it doesn't lock the screen.

    That pissed me off!

    How can I make it back to lock the screen when lid closed without sleep or hibernate?
