    Is there a option to Sleep after laptop is unplugged and the lid is closed.


    I have this little quirk that has left me with a dead battery a few times since XP. The situation I'm in is when I have a laptop that's hooked up to a External Monitor/KB/Mouse, then I go to leave, unplug the laptop, stow it, later on arrive with a dead battery. It arrives dead because it remained on until its in Low/Critical battery state, And its set that way to stay on, when being used as a desktop with lid closed.


    As for the Power Options:

    the Lid Closed will do nothing when plugged in (to use as desktop)

    Lid is closed on battery will got to Sleep


    The Main Question is:

    Is there an option to go to sleep (minutes) after laptop has been unplugged and lid is closed

    :)

  3. Laptop not sleeping when lid is closed and plugged in

    Thank you for your help

    Unfortunately this has not helped but I have made some interesting observations for the past 2 weeks

    My laptop still has this problem in both sleeping and hibernating

    It won't sleep or hibernate fully when I press the buttons in the start menu which forces me to hard shut down my laptop

    But closing the lid with a small amount of force allows the laptop to sleep

    And when I boot it up in safe mode closing the lid hibernates the laptop

    Any suggestions???

    Thanks in advance

    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.
