  1. Turn off laptop display on lid close


    I want my laptop display to turn off when I close the lid with the power connected. This has always been the default, but with Win 11, I cannot find a way to enable this behavior. There is no option in the power settings to turn off the display; only Do Nothing, Hibernate, and Shut Down.This has to be made possible because without it, all applications that are open on the laptop screen stay on the laptop screen when the lid is closed.

    :)

  2. Stop laptop display turning off when closing lid

    Hi,

    I have a laptop connected to an external display via HDMI.

    I want to stop the laptop display turning off when closing the lid and everything moving to the secondary monitor.

    If I had a single monitor it's easy enough to stop the display turning off when closing the lid through power settings.

    However, with dual-monitors I cannot see a way to stop the laptop display turning off and just letting me close the lid.

    Can anyone help please?

    Laptop, Dual Display, Lag with closed lid

    Hi,

    I just bought some monitor to use with my Dell laptop and connected it through the HDMI port of the second graphics display. The problem is that when I close the lid, the laptop automatically turns off the laptop display and stops using the internal video card which leads to minor lag when using the new monitor with only the second graphics display being active.

    Obviously the solutions are:
    1) Somehow force the internal video card to still be used
    2) Stop the turning off of the laptop display when the lid is closed (I don't have such option in control panel -> power options)

    Any ideas how to go fix this besides not closing the lid at all?

    Laptop, Dual Display, Lag with closed lid

    Have you tried right clicking the battery icon in the taskbar, then choose Power Options. On the left side you should have a menu saying "Choose what closing the lid does". Click that and choose what you want.
