HP laptop -Prevent standby mode upon closing the lid

April 2018


Is there any solution to prevent my HP laptop to go in standy mode, upon closing the lid?


  • In the system tray at the bottom right, click on the battery icon and then on Power Options.
  • On the window that opens, click on "Choose what closing the lid does"" and select the desired action.

Thanks to VirtuaproD for this tip.
