Laptop won't turn on after closing the lid

First of all I'm very sorry if I posted this in the wrong forum, I had no idea where to post it because I'm a noob to computers and techy stuff lol.

Basically what happened is that I closed my laptop's lid to bring it to another room. It was fully charged and had absolutely no issues with it. When I opened the lid again the screen was black. No cursor, nothing. The laptop was still on coming from the noises of the motors inside it and the power light was on. I tried holding in the power button so it went off, then turned it back on. Still the black screen. I left the laptop for a while and still nothing. Pressing Ctrl alt delete or moving the mouse or pressing random keys does nothing either.

Please help, I have urgent work I need to be doing and thank god I hadn't done much of it when my laptop decided to hang and not do anything.

I have a Lenovo laptop. That's literally all I know, but it's not one that transforms into a tablet or anything. Just a Lenovo laptop.

Sorry if I was a little vague, as afore mentioned I have little to no knowledge of computers.

I'm typing this on my phone btw.

At this point it would be helpful for this guys to know what type of Lenovo laptop you're having. Try looking on the back of your laptop for a model No, and also look if you can take the battery out. If you can do that, take the battery our and hold the power button on for 30 seconds or so to drain all the power.

Have you tried to connect an external monitor.  Most laptops have a VGA or HDMI connector that you can use to connect to an external monitor.

If you do connect, can you see anything?  What about if you try rebooting?
