When lid is closed with external monitor, laptop never goes to sleep

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I know that in order to use my external monitor with lid closed, I need to set the power settings to "Do nothing when lid is closed".  The only problem is that now my computer literally never shuts down, even when not in use.  What are the optimal power settings for this so my fan is not running 24 x 7?
