When you close the lid of the laptop, the system will detect it and give a response.
You can easily change the functions performed by your system when it detects a closed lid. In addition, you can also determine what action to do when the lid is closed when the laptop is plugged in electricity or using battery power so that it suits your needs.
Action when Lid is closed
Sleep Mode is an energy-saving state that allows activities to resume at full power. In Sleep Mode, the system will store the documents and files you operate in RAM and use little power.
Hibernation mode is also meant to save power but differs from sleep mode in terms of what is done with your data. Hibernation mode does the same thing, but it saves information to your hard disk, which allows your computer to shut down completely and not use energy.
This mode will be suitable if you don’t want to use your laptop for a long time and want to continue your work the next time you turn it on.
The laptop will completely shut down.
