    I've tried the ways you have suggested and when I get to the "When I close my lid" all it says is do nothing when I go to select another option. Thanks for the help so far if there is anything else I might try please let me know.

I agree with the above. Your laptop is confused by a power saving mode that has been junk since the spec came out. As indicated, access the advance tab in Display properties, Power schemes and change the property value for 'closing the lid' to Suspend. Do not set it to do nothing as you may damage your hard drive if it is transported while the lid is closed and power is still on.

    Thanks for the update. My guess is that your power saving options are set in the initial bios setup screens. When you boot up you would press Del, F2 or F10 depending on who made your laptop. I would look there and see if enable DPMS is enabled or not and if not if the option to go into standby is set when the lid closes, which is the safe choice and the one I use on my seven year old laptop. As you can surmise, doing nothing is risky and not sensible as your hard drive could spin up and your laptop get bumped... and you can guess the rest.

    Let us know. Good luck.

CONTROL PANEL --> POWER OPTIONS --> ADVANCED TAB

Select "When I close my lid (or something to that effect)" and change it to "do nothing" or "ask what to do". There is nothing I hate more than a misbehaving hibernation mode!

When I open the notebook the power comes on then shuts off. when I open the note book all the way up it stays on


Click "Start."
Click "Control Panel."
Click "Power Options."
Click the "Change What Closing the Lid Does" hyperlink on the left side of the screen.
Click the "Closing the Lid" drop-down menu. Select either "Sleep," "Hibernate" or "Do Nothing." All three of these options will stop your Acer laptop from shutting down completely when you close the lid. Click "OK" to save changes.

How to close PC laptop lid with external monitor


You need to change the pc power settings, so closing the lid does not turn off the computer.
Open the Power settings by clicking on the battery icon in the bottom right hand of the screen.
Save the settings and it will stay on until you press the power key to turn it off.

Dell Inspiron 1300 - When I re-open the lid,Screen stays Black !


Your laptop either goes to hibernate or sleep mode when you close the lid. Then, when you open the lid up, the screen is still off because your pc already hanged/froze and could not wake up at all (usual problem in vista). Off course, hard shutdown would fix it. But actual fix is under power options on your control panel. Check your current scheme and edit it. There are options there that you can select to "do nothing when closing the lid"

Hope this helps

Laptop screen goes dark.


Is your computer setup to go to sleep when you close the lid?

Click on start -->control panel-->power options and then check the option that says choose what closing the lid does. You have to change this setting to 'do nothing' if you want the computer to stay on when you close the lid.
