The setting for for what happens when the 'lid is closed' is in the power settings for sure....
Okay, I found the option "when you close the lid". It is set to sleep (whether the laptop is plugged in or not). I thought about selecting hibernate, went on the internet and tried to figure out the difference but all I could get was that hibernate means it stores all the info in Ram so when I turn on the computer it loads faster.....that's not what I was trying to find out.
So right now when I close the lid, it makes a sound and when I come back and open the lid and hit the enter key (and sometimes I don't have to anything), it wakes up and everything is fine. So I'm not too worried about that.
What HAS changed (and this happened after I made the fonts a larger size so I could view things better) was that when I try and log off the internet, it does not recognize when I hit the X on the upper right. Now I have to go to the upper X and right click and I select CLOSE and then the Google chrome browser is gone and I'm looking at my desktop.
Before I changed the fonts all I had to do to exit was take my mouse and click on the X. Now it doesn't respond. I mean, I can still close the window but how come it doesn't let me hit the X on the right so I can go off the internet. I don't understand. Do you have any idea why this happened?
Thanks much, Melody
