This just started yesterday. I did not make any changes and there were no system updates that I am aware of. I checked the settings and it is supposed to go to sleep when I close the lid or hit the power button and it always has until now. Now every time I close the lid it seems to shut down and then automatically reboots as soon as I open it. Can anyone tell me how to get it back to the way it was?

Welcome to the HP Forums!
Thank you for posting your query in this forum, it's a great place to find answers.
I reviewed your post and I understand that when you close the lid the computer is not going to sleep.
Don’t worry, we will work together to resolve this issue and It’s a pleasure to assist you in this regard.
The following steps detail how to change what happens when a laptop lid is closed.
This is normally handled as a ‘sleep button’ action, and by default will tell the computer to sleep, however this can be changed to:
- Do nothing
- Sleep (default)
- Shut down
- Turn off the display
- In the Windows search box enter ‘Power Options’ and click on it when it appears in the list.
- On the left of the window, click on the ‘Choose what power buttons do’ link
- Under ‘When I press the sleep button’ choose the option you want to change it to.
- Click ‘Save changes’ to save the changes.
Let me know how it goes and you have a great day!

Perfect, I am really glad to hear that the issue is resolved.
Yes, sometimes the updates can mess up things on your computer as these are generic updates and not PC specific.
If any other questions arise, please feel free to write back to me.
