I have an HP Pavilion dv6000 notebook with Windows Vista. When I close the lid, Windows goes into a standby mode. This is fine when I want to conserve battery life but there are times when I want to leave the computer on at home to finish large downloads.

Change it to do nothing under the power options in control panel

Check that the laptop doesn't get hot running closed up. A friend got worried about this when her laptop didn't go into sleep mode with closed screen.

Can't leave it open??

Change it to do nothing under the power options in control panel
... and configure the Windows to go to "Sleep" mode when the power button is pressed.

Cheers :)
