This is a feature of Windows Laptops, It attempts to save energy or assumes you no longer need it turned on.

You can change this setting by typing "Power Options" or "Power settings" into the Search bar in the start menu

SOURCE: The computer ignores the Power

The Windows power management function seems to be very particular as to the system in which is is installed; I have seen similar uncorrectable glitches on a variety of systems and while the 'Hibernate' worked fine on our system for an extended time, it has since stopped working and refuses to come out of hibernation now. Frankly, it seems just one more of those annoying MicroSoft 'things.'

You appear to be cloning your internal LCD and as long as it is active, the resolution setting for the LCD is also controlling the resolution of the external monitor. When the LCD is closed, then the default resolution of the external monitor is being used by Windows 7 (It apparently has autodetected the size of the monitor and knows the Highest optimal resolution it will display.) The higher the resolution, then smaller the icons.
To resolve, go to display properties and check the resolution of the internal LCD and then set the External display to the lower resolution.
You should be able to wake the system with an external keyboard, by pressing the spacebar, if the system is sleeping

Notebook Crashes to PowerOff state when lid is closed


Running intense program with the lid closed will cause a sharp rise in temperature making the laptop hotter than it should be leading it into a shutdown. The second issue, windows should be shutdown properly rather than closing the lid, this makes the operational system unstable and will cause files to corrupt eventually.

Maybe the little sensor or pin that sticks up and is pushed in when you close the lid is broken and the software doesn't realize the lid has been closed.

My computer windows station is sutting down repeatly and before shutdown show a massege, that is the application failed to intialize because the window station is shutting down


Shutting Down is powering off your computer, That message is just telling you that windows is turning off your computer and closing all programs. If an application fails to initialize it just means it can not start as windows is shutting down

The computer hiberates when I close the lid, then I have to shutdown & restart to resume working. Can I avoid this somehow?


  1. right click your desktop and select properties
  2. select the screen saver tab
  3. at the bottom click the "power" option
  4. deselect the option for hibernation
  5. make sure your hdd is NOT set to turn off when the lid is closed


you can actually set the laptop up to continue running even programs when the lid is closed. this is the best option if you are constantly running application that require an extended wait period between startup and shut-down




good luck and pls rate this post

You have to configure what laptop do when the lod is closed . go to Control Panel , Power Options , Advanced . In this tab you will see an option " When I close the lid " and a drop down menu just choose do nothing and press ok . It will not shut down your laptop when lid is closed .

Logging Off and won't come back on what to do


You can shut it down hard (by holding the power button until it shuts off), wait at least 10 seconds (for your hard drive to stop spinning) then start it up and then try shutting down windows normally instead of just closing the laptop's lid. You can then go into user accounts and delete all accept for your Administrative account (even Guest account), and see if that cures your ills.
Good Luck.
