    You should be able to configure it in Power Settings, find the part where it chooses what to do when the lid closes and set it to "keep running" instead of the current "sleep" or "hibernate".

    still turns off :-/

    Dang, that should have done it... Go to Control Panel (easiest is to search by clicking the Start button, then typing in 'Control Panel') and use Power Options from there. Go to the advanced settings and see if there's something there referencing the lid or perhaps magnetics.

    yea i checked advanced settings and it all shows closing lid set to do nothing but yet it does something... kind of annoying

    on some laptops, even if you set to do nothing on closing lid the external monitors power off, can be a "magnetic"sensor bypassing the setting or a sort of bug.

    i can only suggest you to post this question on reddit WMR, most of the WMR users are there:
