Closing laptop lid during Shutdown sends it to Sleep

    If I press the power button on my laptop to start shutdown, and then close
    the lid, Vista will ignore the fact that it's shutting down and go to Sleep.
    Then when I open the lid later, it wakes up and finishes shutting down! Has
    anybody else noticed this? It would be much better if it just carried on
    shutting down.

    You could change the setting on what happens when you close the lid. Or give
    the laptop more time to get further into the shutdown before closing the
    lid.
    Have you thought about using Hibernate instead of shutdown?

    Most laptops are designed to go into sleep when the lid is closed. G
    into your power options to change what effect closing the lid has. I
    your laptop has vents above the keyboard then leave the settings as the
    are, just dont close the lid as was said by Quaoar or wait until you
    laptop has shut down

  5. Uh - no they are not. No laptop is designed to do ANYTHING when the lid closes, other than tell the operating system "the lid has been closed".

    The operating system (Windows, Mac, Linux, etc.) decides what to do about that.

    In Windows, you can do nothing, sleep, hibernate or power down.
