  1. Laptop half turns off when lid is shut


    when i close my laptop, there tends to be a high likely hood of it “turning off” while staying on. The screen goes black, as if it was off, but the power button stays on and the fan keeps running. I use my laptop in school a lot, and i had this happen to me on a day i didnt bring my charger. Sure enough, my pc was dead when i needed it next.


    The only way i've been able to “fix” this is by holding the power button and restarting the device. This process takes a total of around 10mins (including time it takes to get all my apps such as chrome restored and back up and running), which is too long when your suppose to be taking an online quiz or something. I've had to deal with this for too long, and am hoping for a solution.


    Thanks in advance!


    Edit: Im using a HP Pavilion Laptop

  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. Laptop half turns off when lid is shut

    Shutting the lid....

    I think it still interrupts the USBs when is senses the lid shutting. Anybody know how to stop the USBs from getting interrupted when closing the laptop lid? Maybe some sort of power save thing. I need shutting the lid to have ZERO effect.
