One of the most useful tools that we can count on when doing any type of work is with a laptop. This is due to the fact that these tools can help us at any time and place regardless of where we are.
However, you may have noticed that your computer has a predetermined way in which it goes into sleep mode and that is when the lid of it is closed
This is a usual behavior which carried out, thanks to the configuration that Windows 10 has by default, and although this seems something impossible to disable, we can change it through the system settings, whether you want to change the sleep time or remove it entirely.
It is precisely this to which we will dedicate this post, since there are various users who try in one way or another to find a middle ground between this function which they necessarily want to deactivate.
Steps to follow to avoid suspending your laptop when closing the lid
Start by accessing the energy settings or configurations that your Windows device has, for which you must enter the “Control Panel” and among the options and tools, enter the “Hardware and sound ” section and then locate yourself on the section “Power Options “.
It is there, the place where we can see about the power plans that are available within the system and likewise, in the section on the left side of the window, we will see a series of multiple menu options. Among which we must locate the option “Choose the behavior of the lid closure”.
Here we will see that a new window will open, in which we can change the behavior or likewise, the actions that are performed once the on or off button is pressed, or also, the suspension button.
In this way, we can differentiate between both cases and choose the action we want in order to reduce the energy consumption of the computer .
In order to carry out the main task we want, we must enter the option “When closing the lid ” there we will see a series of options among which the vast majority are offered with unique options when the battery is connected.
Among the options, we can choose: Suspend, Hibernate, Shut down or Do nothing, but for the purposes of what we want to achieve, we are going to select the option of “do nothing”.
Start by creating your own power plan
One of the fastest ways with which we can adapt our needs to the system requirements, is by creating our own power plan or importing and exporting them in your Windows 10 , with which we define the actions and uses that we need.
For this, we must start by right-clicking on the battery icon, since there, we can see that a small menu will open , in which we can choose the energy options we want.
Now we are going to enter the screen that appears initially and proceed to create an energy plan, which we must also assign a name to in order to identify it more optimally.
In the beginning, it is not necessary to decide much about the way in which this tool is going to work, however, it is important that it be assigned and represented in the optimal way, the way in which it is going to work. In such a way that being our default option, we can use it without any problem or confusion.
With this, you can now have control over this section of energy in your computer, and use everything much more efficiently than before.
