Thinkpad Yoga screen does not turn off when closed

2014-12-02, 21:55 PM

I realized that the screen of my Thinkpad Yoga does not turn off when it's closed. I am not talking about standby. I did not set my Yoga to go into standby when closing the lid, I wan't it to keep running and download/process/simulate and so on. Nevertheless, the screen should normaly turn off when closed to safe battery.


I am not sure if my Yoga had that from the start, because I had the screen (because of burn in), the webcam (because of malfunction) and the mainboard (because of ongoing malfunction) replaced. So I can't really tell which and if any of thes operations changed the behaviour.


Can any one of you confirm that their screen is turning off when closing the lid (without going to standby).


Thank you very much!
