    Please help. Scenario: the computer described above functions normally, if
    I close lid on laptop while computer up and running, then when I re-open lid,
    screen is black. However, computer is running in background, only way I can
    recover screen is to shutdown computer by pressing manual power off button,
    Windows then says "Good-by" after a few seconds, then I restart computer
    manually. If I go to "power options properties, advanced tab" under the
    option "when I close the lid" the only option I am given is "Do nothing".
    What I want is ability to close lid and reopen and use the computer without
    having to restart it manually. Any ideas??
