  2. 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

  3. Windows 10 sleeps when using external monitor and closing the laptop lid.

    Hey Likitha

    Thanks for your response.

    Before we assist further, I would like to ask you a few questions:

    • Have you set Sleep function to activate on closing the laptop lid?
    • Did you check if the laptop goes to sleep when not connected to external monitor and lid closed?

    To respond to your questions

    (1) I have set the sleep function to operate on laptop lid close only when the laptop is on battery power. When it is plugged in I have set it to do not sleep ever.

    (2) I have tested that it does *not* go to sleep when I the laptop is plugged in and I close the laptop lid

    Further information:

    (1) When I first turned the laptop on I attached it to the monitor and closed the lid. It then ran successfully for approximately an hour before hibernating.

    (2) I then restarted the system, external monitor plugged in, lid closed and it went to hibernate after approximately 2 minutes.
