The screen turning off when the lid closes it a function of the hardware. Not controllable via Windows.

you did reboot the system since you made the changes? stupid question but have to ask.
my laptop doesn't have a setting in the bios but it's possible your does. mine always comes back on but it didn't used to if I put it to sleep.
that problem is something a lot of people have issues with because of a poor graphics card. sometimes a updated driver works.
