Background programs

Product Name: HP Notebook
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

I have already gone into the power settings and adjusted the "close the lid" and "turn off display" settings to DO NOTHING, but when I close the lid, apps I have running stop. Then imediately start back when I open my laptop lid. Please help!!

Re: Background programs



Thank you for posting on HP Forums,

The Riddle_Decipher is at your service.


I understand you want the computer to be running when the LID is closed as well,

I'll be glad to help you out, however, for an accurate solution I will need more details:


Would it be safe to assume you've got a dual monitor setup to your HP notebook?

What is the product number of your product? Use this link to find it: 

Have you attempted any steps on your own before posting on the HP Forums?


In the meantime, extend the monitor display to the other monitor and make the external display your "main display" before you close the LID set to do nothing when closed.

Please reply with the details for further assistance.


Eager to help!

Feel free to post your query for any other assistance as well,

It's been a pleasure interacting with you and I hope you have a good day ahead.
