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)
- Shut down
- Turn off the display
- In the Windows search box enter ‘Power Options’ and click on it when it appears in the list.
- On the left of the window, click on the ‘Choose what power buttons do’ link
- Under ‘When I press the sleep button’ choose the option you want to change it to.
- Click ‘Save changes’ to save the changes.
