OK, seriously guys. Why on earth would you want a laptop to hibernate by default when you close the screen?
Am I the only one who wants my computer to run while the screen is closed? If I’m running a spyware/virus scan, or even just trying to get to the USB port on the back of my machine, I don’t want the computer to take a nap.
Fortunately, it’s easy to correct this annoying behavior. Just go to the Power Options in the Control Panel, go to the Advanced tab, and change the drop down under “When I close the lid of my portable computer” to “Do Nothing.”
