    Why is my "When I close the lid:" options greyed out ?


    Whenever I want to turn "Do Nothing" for both On Battery and Plugged In for "When I close the lid:" it appeared greyed out and nothing seems to happen. Does anyone know how to fix this?

    :)

  2. Lid Close Options

    My Windows 10 is fully updated but the last update no longer shows a category for "lid closed" options. Have these moved? I want the computer to do nothing when plugged in and the lid is closed.

    What happens if you do the following?

    Press Windows key + X

    Click Power Options

    Under Related settings, click Additional power settings

    Under Control Panel Home, click 'Choose what closing the lid does'

    Click Choose settings that are currently unavailable

    Click in the list box for when you are 'Plugged in' then choose 'Do nothing'

    Click Save changes.

    Hi,

    • Press the Win Key + X to display the
      system menu.

    • Select Control Panel.

    • Select Power Options.

    • On theleft side menu, select the Choose what closing the lid does option.

    • Look in the Power and sleep buttons and lid settings section.

    • Use the drop down menus in the
