just whether only the screen lights are off(dim) or actually laptop is shut down.. otherwise remove the battery and then start the computer and after opening search for lid and close and then setting will open and then change "what happens when u close the lid" or make it to do nothing "Change what closing the lid does" - exact search words
Your Gateway laptop comes with a series of LED lights that alert you to the state of your computer. You'll notice there are blue, purple and red lights that either blink or display solidly. Each light, blinking or solid, has a different meaning. The blue blinking light on your laptop indicates that it is in Standby mode. Your laptop goes into Standby when you close its lid without shutting down the computer. To turn this light off, you'll need to take the computer out of Standby mode, and if you want to ensure that the blinking blue light does not return, shut down the computer after each use.
Open the lid of your Gateway laptop and press the power button. Once Windows loads, enter your password if required. The blue light will no longer be blinking because the computer is no longer in Standby mode. Shut the laptop off when you finish using it rather than simply closing the lid to stop the blue light from blinking again. Click "Start" from your Windows desktop and click "Shut down." Change your computer's power settings to keep if from going into Standby mode when you close the lid if you'd rather not shut down your computer every time you use it. Click "Start" and click "Control Panel." Click "System and Security" and then click "Power Options." Click "Choose what closing the lid does" from the list of options on the left side of the window. Select "Hibernate" from the drop-down lists under "On Battery" and "Plugged In." Click "Save Changes." Your laptop will now bypass Standby mode when you close the lid and it will enter Hibernate mode instead. Hope it helps.

tape down the little black plastic lever (usually on left side) so it can't pop back up which causes it to invoke error message "cover open" and "cover closed" who needs a machine to tell a cover is open?
Are both sides not staying shut? If it's only one side, look to see if the latch is broken. You should see an arm move when you press down the eject button - while the door is open, press the eject button and see where the arm moves. You should see a hook that catches the door and keeps it closed. It could be broken, or just jammed. Look at the other side of the deck and see it it looks like it's working the same. Unjam the latch arm if it's stuck, or replace it if it's broken.
I have that exact problem at work. There is a bump on the right side of the lid...and when you close the lid it presses on a lever. Check and see that the bump actually pushes that lever downwards. That's how the printer determines that it's closed.
The symptoms you are describing are usually caused by a bad lid switch. The washer will fill, agitate, but when it starts to go to the rinse cycle, the washer stops and will not advance any further. The lid switch is located on the right hand side of the wash tub opening on most top loader machines. Check to see if it has come loose. There are two screws holding it in place. Additionally, there should be a small plunger on the lid that pushes down on the switch to activate it when the lid is closed. Make sure this plunger is intact. If your washer does not have a lid switch mounted on the right hand side of the lid, it will be located on the left hand side in the rear under the console. A simple test is to open and close the lid and listen for a "clicking" noise. If you can't hear the contacts closing, your switch is probably bad. In the case of the rear mounted lid switch, there is an arm on the lid that activates the contacts. Sometimes the arm becomes bent and will not close the switch contacts. Generally, the repair is simple and a lid switch usually runs about $35. If you post back with your model number I can get an exact part number for you and give you step-by-step instructions on how to replace it. Let me know. I hope this helps you.
