Hi:

 

If I had to take a guess, that would be due to the antennas in the display panel not having as good a reception as they do when the lid of the notebook is open.

 

If the reception is less, the wifi speed will also decrease.

Did you also go into the device manager>network adapters> click on the model wifi card listed, click on the power management tab, and uncheck the box to 'allow the computer to turn off the wifi adapter to save power'?

 

That is the only other setting I can think of that you can change.

 

Other than that, I don't see how the wifi reception/speed can be the same with the lid shut as with it open.

 

That's like having an old car telescopic type antenna up or down.  

 

With it up, it will get much better reception, then if you shrink it to its smallest length.

I already did it and for antenna I don't think the problem is because if I close the laptop almost completely, but not to such a state when the screen goes off then everything is fine
