Windows 7: power button just puts laptop to sleep

power button just puts laptop to sleep

I recently upgraded from vista 32 bit to 7 64 bit and one of the first things I did was adjust the power options. I set power button to "shut off" I set the sleep button to "sleep" and I set closing my laptop to "do nothing" yet all 3 just make it sleep! I can see that everything is set the way I put it but it still falls asleep when I close the lid and when I push the power button even though I set it to do something else, any ideas?

Try setting "when you close the lid" to Shut down.

ok that worked but I stopped it from shutting down, I would like it to DO NOTHING when I shut the lid

edit: and then when I switched it back to "do nothing" it still shuts off now...

Control Panel | Power Options
In the left-hand side task pane, you will see selections to:
Choose what the power buttons do and
Choose what closing the lid does.

There are settings for when on battery and when plugged in.
