    Not sure if this is the right place for this question. I don't know what
    category it falls into. I'm trying to find where the setting is in Vista to
    stop my laptop from going into some kind of sleep mode every time I close the
    lid?

    Thank you.

    Same as in XP - Control panel-Power options.

    I think you are right: it does not have to do with Vista. Look in Control
    Panel for an icon named Power Options or the like. In my lapto (it's a Vaio)
    there are settings for definig what happens when you close the lid.

    have a nice day

    Thanks very much. I never would have found that on my own.

    Cheers.

    And it's even easier than that - Control panel-Power options and in the L/H
    pane there's an option to change the behaviour when the lid is closed...
