Windows 7: Shutdown + closing laptop lid

25 Sep 2015   #21

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1

matejdro, why don't you disassemble your laptop and remove the switch that detects when the laptop is closed? I bet that fixes your problem. Just be aware that you will void any warranty and risk damaging something while in there resulting in problems you'll really be bothered by.

8.1 x64
This IS a REAL issue

Why would an operating system require it's users to know that they are not allowed by the IT gods to close the lid whilst the laptop is busy shutting down. If a shut down is already in progress the sleep command should be disabled. I actually think this is a BIOS issue not a windows issue.

In a school where 30 kids are trying to cram their laptops back into the charging cart before the end of the lesson this is a huge issue as the kids who need to use the laptops aftertham have to wait fot the laptops to finish shutting down from last time them have to wait for another boot. This is especcially an issue on Atom 1GB RAM spinning rust HDD powered netbooks which were inflicted on schools.
