  1. Win 10 Pro Laptop goes to sleep when I close lid


    Despite setting the Power Options to 'Do Nothing' when I close my laptop lid, there is a strange quirk. Whenever I am trying to play a game using my external monitor, whenever I close the lid the laptop turns off. If I am watching netflix or youtube, nothing happens. It stays on. This issue happens with ALL games, not just one 'brand' or say steam. I would REALLY like an answer to this issue, as it has been driving me mad for months. I like to do things like AFK fishing in Black Desert, but I can't now.

    :)

  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.

    Win 10 - computer won't lock or sleep when lid is closed

    upgraded to win 10 and now my laptop won't lock or sleep when I close the lid. Computer stays on and kills my battery at night. I have gone into the control panel and adv settings in power to make sure that on lid close it is on sleep. Verified that yes
    it is. On win 8 my computer would lock when I close the lid but now it doesn't do that either. Getting frustrated already with Win 10.
