Windows 7 laptop does not sleep or hibernate when lid is shut (but that is how it is configured)


Recommended Posts

This is a laptop running windows 7 ultimate.  The desktop is extended to an external monitor.

In the power plan settings, when plugged in, the "put the computer to sleep" option is set to never.

In advanced power settings, under power buttons and lid, the lid close action when plugged in is set to hibernate (on battery it is set to sleep, but it is always on ac power).

Yet, when I close the lid, windows tranfers all open windows to the still-powered external monitor.  It does not shut down or sleep or hibernate.

Can anyone explain this?
