TechBuzz reader, Nisha dropped me a mail asking Ã¢â‚¬Å“How to close the laptop Lid, without putting it on standbyÃ¢â‚¬Â and in the mean time, she wants to utilize her laptops idle time to download.
By default, all laptops either go on standby or turn off to save precious battery, but you can override these rules from the Power Options (XP) in your control panel (Start > Control Panel > Performance and Maintenance > Power Options) and click on Advanced Tab and override the settings according to your preference.
I prefer “Do nothing” while closing the lid. Although this is real simple, few of us might not know it. I hope this helps you Nisha!
