  1. Windows 10 doesn't sleep when lid closed


    How is it that Microsoft has not figured out how to solve this problem for the past 15+ years? I think the code looks something like this:


    If lid=closed then sleep


    Of course someone will inevitably reply to this and tell me how it's "not this simple." Yes, jackass from the future, we all know it might be a little harder than what I've described.


    C'mon Microsoft, this is kid's stuff.


    Git'r done!

  2. Sleep mode when lid is closed

    When I close the lid of my Lenovo laptop with Windows 7, the computer doesn NOT go to sleep. The settings in Control Panel are correct: When I Close The Lid I have put SLEEP for battery and plugged in mode. How can I get it to go back to working normally
    and putting my laptop to sleep mode when I close the lid? I already had Windows 7 re-installed, but the problem is still there. Thank you Windows 10 doesn't sleep when lid closed :)

    Closing the lid will only enter into sleep by chance

    I have a thinkpad X1 carbon, and upgraded to Windows 10.

    Everything worked fine including sleep.

    Suddenly one day ( well I can't really recall which day, just recently), I noticed that when I close the lid, it won't enter into sleep.

    If I open the lid, and close the lid again in short time, it will enter into sleep then.

    I then started testing, and close and open close and open.

    Generally, the behaviour is like this:

    1. If I close the lid, 9 out of 10 will not sleep, and there's some chance that it will sleep.

    2. If I close the lid (no sleep), open the lid again, and close the lid again in shor time, 9 out of 10 it will sleep at the second close.

    3. If I close the lid (no sleep), open the lid, and do some operation (browsing etc), then close the lid, it will not sleep (see step 1)

    4. If I change the settings to : close the lid then hibernate, then it works everytime, closing the lid will hibernate the computer.

    5. In battery mode, the sleep works when lid is closed, only in plugged-in mode, the sleep doesn't work!

    My attempts:

    1. I tried to see the system event log, and found that, if I close the lid, and the comuter is not in sleep mode, it enters into Away mode. So it did detect the closing action, and tried to do something, but decided to go to away rather than sleep, which
    is really rediculous.

    2. I tried to seach on the forum, and found some media sharing stuff, I tried all settings, including disable media sharing, they didn't solve my problem.

    3. I also tried to use "powercfg -requests" in cmd window and found there are none applications that is preventing the system from entering into sleep.

    4. I tried to set every single power settings of plugged-in mode to be as same as "battery" mode, no use. Battery still works and plugged in mode still not working most of the time.

    5. System restore is not an option because I disabled system restore (harddisk is too small for system restore).

    Any advice will be appreciated.

    Thanks.
