Re: laptop shuts down when i close lid

You can adjust what happens when you close the lid in the advanced power settings.

Re: laptop shuts down when i close lid

What do you change it to? I am connecting it to a docking station (really a replicator) and would like to close the lid but it keeps turning off, even after I set the "what should happen when close lid" setting to nothing?

 

Thanks.
