Hi everyone,
this is an ongoing problem, that i have had for a few months.
I have gone to power options and made it so that it should'nt turn off if the lid is closed, but it still does.
Laptops a Dell Inspiron 1300.
Any suggestions?

Look in the systems BIOS for the power settings. THere may be a "what to do when lid is closed" setting there that is overriding the Windows setting.

there is a switch in the lid some where that turns the screen off. supposedly you can remove it. Mine does the same thing and I really am not concerned about it as its a power saving feature and my battery is dying. as long as its just the screen turning off and not going into hibernation i wouldnt mess with it
