Windows 10 – How to set what happens when laptop lid closed

The following steps detail how to change what happens when a laptop lid is closed.

This is normally handled as a ‘sleep button’ action, and by default will tell the computer to sleep, however this can be changed to:

  • Do nothing
  • Sleep (default)
  • Hibernate
  • Shut down
  • Turn off the display
  1. In the Windows search box enter ‘Power Options’ and click on it when it appears in the list.
  2. On the left of the window, click on the ‘Choose what power buttons do’ link
  3. Under ‘When I press the sleep button’ choose the option you want to change it to.
  4. Click ‘Save changes’ to save the changes.
