View Full Version : G75VW Won't sleep or turn off display when closed

I've had my G75VW-NS71 for about a week now and a few days ago I noticed that when closing the computer, it no longer goes into sleep mode and will wait the default 15 or 30 minutes or so (depending on power setting) until it finally goes to sleep.

Even when closed, the computer remains on, functioning normally as if it were open.

And yes, I've looked at the advanced power settings to make sure closing the lid is supposed to make it sleep.

The magnetic switch to determine the lid is closed may be defective. Contact your retailer and see if you can exchange your defective laptop for a new one.
