I only use this laptop at home, and I would like it to stay connected when the lid closed so my dropbox and crashplan will continue to work during this time. How can I keep it from disconnecting when I close the lid?

  • when you close the lid, your PC goes to hibernate or suspension? – AlexGreg Aug 12 '14 at 6:32
  • Ok but where can I change this? – MrsAngelD Aug 12 '14 at 6:36
  • mine was a question :-) – AlexGreg Aug 12 '14 at 6:37
  • Oh I see...lol. – MrsAngelD Aug 12 '14 at 6:37

Disable lid close actions in all of the power management profiles:

System Settings > Hardware > Power Management > Energy Saving

and, in each tab, under "Button events handling" set "When laptop lid closed" to "Do nothing".
