How to Toggle Allowing Laptop to Power On With Lid Closed

HP Recommended
Probook x360 11 G1 EE
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I own several Probook x360 11 G1 EE laptops.


Some of the laptops require the lid to be open before the laptop can be powered on by pressing the power button. With some of them, I can turn them on by pressing the power button with the lid closed.


There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason as to which method each laptop has. After updating or re-installing windows, the behavior will occasionally change.


Is there a way to control this behavior? I can't seem to find a setting or any literature about it anywhere.


I would prefer if they only turned on when the lid was open, as they get turned on easily when in a bag.
