laptop display turn off on closing of the lid

    In XP, within the power settings, when I set the options to "do nothing" when
    the lid on my Inspiron 8600 is closed, the display would turn off but the
    computer itself would still be running. With Vista, doing the same thing,
    does not turn off the display, further more when the lid is closed other
    power settings don't apply either. For instance, I set the time at which the
    display turns off at 20 minutes, it does not turn off the display if the lid
    is down.

    Is this just a glitch, or do I have to do something else to achieve the
    functionality I want?

    I'm having the EXACT same problem. I would like to close my lid on my laptop
    and have the display turn off but keep the computer running. It worked
    flawlessly under XP and doesn't with Vista. This is a MAJOR issue with me.
