Envy 17t and external monitor, is it a HP setting or Windows 10 setting

HP Envy 17t
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

How can I operate my Envy 17t with the lid closed and external keyboard and monitor plugged in?

 

When I lift the lid and power up the laptop boots as expected and my external monitor and keyboard work fine.  Howeve if I close the lid to just use the external monitor and keyboard the 17t shuts down.  How can I keep it on/awake with the lid closed?  Is it an HP Envy setting or a Windows setting?

 

I do this every day at work with my HP Elite book.

@Tim0365

Most likely, it's a Windows Power setting.

Open Settings --> System --> Power & Sleep

Select Additional power settings

Look through those to see what happens when you close the lid and change those.
