Hey folks.  So, I'm on an Asus ROG G752VT laptop, running Windows 10.  Out of nowhere, my machine seems to shut down upon lid closing and restart on opening.  I have checked all of my settings and made sure I have all of them set so this shouldn't happen.  I'm at a loss as to why this is happening.  Are there any usual suspects aside from the obvious settings issues?  I've recently come over from having a MacBook for the last 10 years.  I feel like a noob again.

 

Thanks.

Of cource not, default settings are - go to sleep, if lid is closed and wake, if opens again.
Change settings, if You want something else.
Right click on the Power Icon on taskbar and select Power Options or open Control Panel => Power Options
There is "Choose what closing the lid does"

I've done all of that.  This is what is confusing.  So, to be clear...it isn't going to "sleep", it's shutting down.  It does a full restart, complete with having had closed all programs.

If You want, select "Do nothing" and do not forget to save changes.

Did it all, man.  I'm thinking something is amiss with a driver or something.

See whether a such file exists powercfg.exe
location %windir%\system32\
or if windows is installed on C drive, then C:\Windows\System32
If it is there, we can try also one script to set all lid actions to Do nothing

Find this key in registry
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power\PowerSettings\
 
then key
4f971e89-eebd-4455-a8de-9e59040e7347
 
and backup the subkey
5ca83367-6e45-459f-a27b-476b1d01c936
 
then copy-paste code from spoiler to notepad and save as Lid_Do_Nothing.reg (NB! select All Files (*.*) and Unicode), if done, double click on this reg file and OK OK (if User Account Control is enabled, then there Yes).
Now the lid should do nothing. If You want go back, use Your backup reg file.
Usually restart is not needed.
 
Spoiler
 
If it also doesn't work, must be something else wrong, damaged or missing at all.
