Thinkpad Yoga 12 + Onelink

Does anyone know if itis possible to do the following:

When connected to the Onelink dock, closing the lid will NOT turn off/standby laptop.


I know there is the option on the power settings to choose not to do anything when the lid is closed, but that is not so ideal when we have the laptop connected to the wall and not the dock... So the idea is if it is possible to make it ignore closing the lid only if the dock is connected,


Thank you.

Hi Ricardo,


Welcome to Lenovo Community! And happy to have you here.


As I understand that you have query regarding Onelink dock with Thinkpad Yoga 12.

Sorry to inform you but there is no such option if you'll close the lid of the system the action which is assigned in Power options will work. So the only option left with you is to choose Do nothing while closing the lid.

Still you can try with this method may this can work 


Please feel free to post in Lenovo Community Forums if you have any further queries!

Re: Thinkpad Yoga 12 + Onelink

Thanks, your recomendation is what i have been doing so far. I was just hoping that maybe could be some option on the onelink drivers that could make it so that the laptop doesn't go to sleep when closing lid if, the onlink is connected. But your recomendation isn't also so bad, as it is what i'm using for the past months.
