When I close lid, laptop goes to sleep even though I've fixed Power Op

Hi,

These are the settings in the power options (Picture), and I set it to never sleep. However it still goes to sleep after a few minutes of me closing the lid. Help please?


Windows 7, 64bit OS, HP pavilion.

Go to control panel-Hardware and Sound-Power options.On the left side panel is "Choose what closing the lid does".Under the option when i close the lid,select do nothing in both battery and plugged in.
