How do I disable the laptop from shutting off when closing li

    Connected laptop to monitor whilst im waiting for parts for my new pc bit I want to close the lid but when I try to it turns pc off.

    So its either leave screen open and having to look over the laptop or find a way to close it.

    Never mind find out how.


    Which OS are you using.?

    double click the batter/power icon and in one of the tabs you select it to do nothing when you close the lid.

    In XP go to START --> Control Panel --> Power options and select the advanced tab. You will see actions listed for when you close the lid

    Glad you asked this question ryouga! and thanks to bendybadger I have finally sorted it
