Note: You can also customize what the power button does using the same method.
There a couple of different options to choose from when it comes to your PC's lid. Although they're similar, they have big impact on your power usage.
Search for an click Control Panel, and then click Hardware and Sound. Click Choose what closing the lid does. You can choose from the following options, separately for battery and plug in:
Do nothing: Closing the lid will not do anything to your PC. It will remain on.
Sleep: This option puts your PC to "sleep" when the lid is closed. It uses a minimal amount of power but allows the PC to instantly wake up when you open the lid. Sleep mode also saves your current work and running programs.
Hibernate: This option make your PC "hibernate" when the lid is closed. It's similar to Sleep but uses far less battery. It is designed for longer periods away from the PC.
Shut down: This will make the PC completely shut down when the lid is closed, so it will use virtually no battery.
