Compaq Armarda 7400 -stay on when shut?

  GRC 22:58 30 Jan 2005

Does anyone know how I can prevent my Compaq laptop from shutting down when the lid is closed?? I don't mind the screen going off but the whole machine goes into stanby whenever the lid is shut. As I use this primarily on the desktop it can be more than a nuiscance!

There may be something in Control Panel's Power Options to set the laptop's behaviour when the lid is closed.

Look under power management. Very similar to the 7800 (a brick of a machine but reliable). Also on some laptops ther is a tiny button under the screen and when this is pressed. it goes into stand-by.
