Photo by epikbuzzMy Laptop’s LCD screen was not working properly so rather than repairing the screen, I preferred to buy a new 23” LCD Screen. I chose Samsung. It shows good quality and sharp graphics. Coming back to the main point, now I have connected the laptop with the 23” LCD monitor and want to turn off my laptop’s LCD screen.
Now whenever I closed my laptop’s LCD screen, the laptops goes into sleep mode. I wanted to close the LCD lid of the laptop so that it remains safe. By the way I’m using external keyboard and mouse so I don’t need the laptop keyboard and touch pad.
Here is what I did to stop my laptop to sleep or hibernate on closing the LCD screen.
In Windows 7, go to Start Menu search and write power options. Press Enter to select the first result which should be Power Options. There will be three modes preset by Windows 7 which can be selected according to the situation. If you want to change the mode according to the situation, then I would recommend you to read the following article:
To edit a power plan which you want to use normally and want to prevent the computer to sleep or hibernate when closing the LCD screen, select that power plan from Power Options. I prefer High Performance plan to run normally on my laptop.
Select Change plan settings.
Then select Change advanced power settings and expand “Power buttons and lid”.
Then expand “Lid close action”
Click on Plugged in and select Do nothing.
Now if your laptop will not sleep on closing the LCD Screen or lid.
