P50 does not go to sleep mode when I close the lid

2020-04-12, 0:14 AM

For many years my Lenovo P50 also went to sleep mode when I closed the lid. Some 6 months ago something changes (Maybe a Windows 10 update?) and it does not work anymore. Even when I change the settings under Hardware and Sound / Power Options/ System Settings -> "When I close the lid" and set both "on battery" and "plugged in" to SLEEP/SLEEP - it will only work for one time.


Next time when I wake the up the computer the settings has been reverted back to Do nothing (on battery) and Do Nothing ( Plugged in). It seems that there is another application that overrides the  settings. Any advice?
