How to control laptop lid function

January 8th, 2013 by admin | Posted under HARDWARE, WINDOWS.

When we close our laptop lid, by default, the computer goes to sleep mode. It is useful in cases we want to pause our work for a period of time. But if we close the lid by mistake, say while burning a CD or DVD or while downloading some files from Internet, our work suspends and gets corrupted by the sleep function. But we can configure it such that closing lid will just turn off display, nothing else. To do so, follow the below steps,

  1. Go to Control Panel

  1. Go to Choose what closing the lid does

  4. Click on “Save Changes” and you are done.
