While close the cover my Laptop is turning off

Hi all,

My problem is, While I want my laptop to running all the time even when I close the cover, it always turning off and start my work all over again (I'm using a program which I have to make it run all the time even if I'm out of my home, So I want to close the cover & keep it always working)
Note: I've edit the options in the battery to not do anything while close the cover, but its turning off.
Please help & sorry for my English

Set the power option to High Performance.
Open Change plan settings - Change advanced power settings
Under "Power button and lid" set it to "do nothing"

Open up power options from the control panel. On the left select choose what closing the lid does. Beside when I close the lid select Do nothing from the drop down under on battery or plugged in. Note though that laptops aren't designed to be left running all of the time because you will have to leave it plugged in all of the time which is not good for the battery. If you really want to leave it running all of the time then I would run it without the battery connected.

I rely want it running all the time, & I did what you suggest already but still my laptop turning off after around 10 minutes of my closing the cover. I believe there is a problem in this laptop cause I've before one laptop & that laptop was running all the time even when I close the cover.
I don't care about the battery, I'm always using the cable.

thanks

I would post the Model Number of the laptop, it may help in finding an answer. Did you go through all the settings in "Change advanced power settings". I would go through them all and look to see if you missed something that is causing this. Expand the "Hard disk" "Sleep" and look at those closely.

My laptop model is: Asus N550J < if that what you mean.
There is nothing missed in "Change advanced power settings" I checked them all & all are in "Dont do anything"

thanks

As the shut down is stated to occur 10 Minutes after the lid is closed I would suggest that the reason for shutdown is not due to the Lid closer " switch" but the built in Inactivity timer(s) that can be set to ShutDown sleep or hibernate the laptop after a set number of Minutes

I don't have a Win7 Device available at present but just go into the Power Options, and find the option to switch of the system to save power After x Minutes and set it to either something like 360 Minutes or Never - do this for the Battery and Mains states

Just don't close the lid

The lappy "should" have came with Windows 8.* installed (?) so there wouldn't be any type of Factory Bloatware that would take control of the power settings ??
