Computer Shuts Down On Closing Lid

Hi,

In the past few days, when I shut the lid of my laptop (Dell Inspiron, Windows 7 64bit)it closes all open programmes. The computer does not switch off but I have to log in again & log into the internet, e mail and any other work files that were open.

As I say, this has only started to happen in the past few days and I have not added or deleted anything (to my knowledge).

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Ray

Go to Control Panel and choose Power Options, click on Advance Settings, choose power buttons and lid, it should give you three options, choose lid close action,choose "do nothing".
