    How to ...

    I have a laptop but use a separate monitor, keyboard and mouse. After being in for repair the laptop now shuts down when I close the lid, it didn't before. How can I get it to not shut down so I can carry on using it?

    Thank you Andi, that worked, I'm very grateful. I've been going around in circles after getting it back from the repair man and it's great to get at least one issue fixed.
