Black Screen Issue when lid closes

When I close the lid of my laptop, and then reopen it sometime after, the screen is black. Power light is on, I can here sounds, such as plugging in a usb device, but is black. I just restart it and its back, but I shouldn't have to do that every time. What do ya think?

Sounds like a power setting. Try this, type power options in start search (in the start menu), click on it. Click on change what plan does under select a power plan. Find power options and lid, and expand it. Change the lid setting to do nothing when its closed.

See if that helps any

Boot into your BIOS and make sure it is set to the setting in the manufacturer manual.
