Thinkpad yoga 12 close lid problem

Switching closing lid action to "do nothing" from power settings in every power plan but when I close the lid, computer goes to sleep. I want to listen music from winamp, but music will stop.

Re: Thinkpad yoga 12 close lid problem

Hi, welcome to the forums.


You are using Windows 10, right?

Just as a first step, update your Power Management drivers on the Yoga 12.

- Lenovo Power Management Driver for Windows 10 (32-bit, 64-bit) - Laptop


It is also good to have your BIOS at the latest level available:

- BIOS Update Utility for Windows 10 (64-bit), 8.1 (64-bit), 8 (32-bit, 64-bit), 7 (32-bit, 64-bit) - ...


After that check if the "closing lid" action becames responsive. Also check if it has the same behaviour if it is plugged or unplugged to the power wall.
