hi. i chose "do nothing" when closing the laptop lid. However when i close the lid and it eventually goes to sleep after a while, i cant wake it by just opening the lid. Is there a way to wake the computer by just opening the lid?
You should be able to go into Advanced Options under Power Options and change the option for what happens when the lid is opened. You might also want to make sure it's set this way for both in AC Adapter and battery. If it doesn't work you may have something going on behind the scenes preventing it from happening correctly.
