Do you have hibernation enabled? Does it happen right away or after a long time?

Check here:
Hibernate - Enable or Disable

If you're not comfortable with CMD or registry, try option 4

Are you using an external Monitor, Keyboard, & Mouse and want to close the lid and keep working on the external monitor ?
When you close the lid the external monitor shuts off ?

No I do not have a monitor or any other external display connected. I want to keep the laptop awake so it will do a specific something even with the lid closed.
