i have to press the power button every time instead. all the laptop i've owned before were never like that, opening the lid would've sufficed. i checked power options settings, i don't see "lid open action", only "lid close action" which is set to "sleep" mode. any idea?

That's a default action either pressing Enter key or Power button to wake up from sleep or hibernate depending on the computer brand. Travel to the power option settings for any other available options.

You want to close the lid and not put laptop to sleep? Or not have to press a key when opening the lid while on hibernate/sleep?

From my understanding sleep mode will require a button press to start up. By having it setup to go into sleep mode when the lid is closed it is not waking up when the lid is opened because it is in sleep mode. If interested you can try changing the lid close function and see if this resolves you lid open dilemma. The good news is if you don't like the result for any reason you already know where and how to change it back.

yes, i want it to wake from sleep mode when i open the lid without my pressing any button since it goes to sleep mode when i close the lid. that's how all my old laptops always worked,

Later computer models requires user to press a key to enable PC to wake up from sleep or hibernation. So, I guess we have to live with that. :)

Hi cute -
Just a quick question - -
Is your laptop the same make and model as your friends ? Some makes / models are not the same.

However I do believe there is a setting somewhere in Control Panel for adjusting this, on my Toshiba laptop.

Thank You -
EDIT - The power restart option also depends if you are on battery or plugged in -

Not all computers are designed to have those certain wake-up functions. If you have one and the other does not, just get used to pressing a SINGLE KEY.

before my HP laptop C-drive failed, the Windows 7/64 Home Premium installed allowed the unit to wake from sleep by raising the lid.

 

the version that the tech installed when the drive was replaced does not appear to have this option, even though it too is a Windows 7/64 Home Premium. Now i have to press the power button and it takes MUCH MUCH longer to wake up. No more instant up like it was before. The prior windows was an HP OEM. The one that was installed post-repair is a Dell OEM. 

so it is definitely not about the machine. It's something to do with the version of the version (version²) of windows.

i am unable to find my recovery disc for this unit, so my old windows and it's instant wake-up option are lost and gone forever. Unless someone has a better idea?

if so, i would LOVE to hear it. Every reminder of what that person did to my notebook (oh, there are so many things!) just galls me. I've spent almost two weeks restoring and updating and installing drivers. And the altered wake function is the first and most frequent reminder. Before coffee even.

 

(And yes, i've learned to be more specific about how i label and store my recovery discs. I've had too many pc's over too many years and got sloppy. My bad!)

When you go to power options, make sure the action to take when lid is closed is Sleep and not Hibernate.

Thank you. I'm new here and can't seem to attach an image, but my settings are and have been correct. The computer sleeps fine when i close the lid. It's what happens when i open the lid that is the problem.

There is a System Device called ACPI Lid in Device Manager. When you Right click and select Properties does it say the driver is working properly?
