If you’re always working on something or the other and have an affinity towards looking at your to do list posted on the screen while you work then you know that it’s a pain to constantly tap the keyboard or roll the mouse (I’m lazy) to bring the screen back on. This tutorial will show you how to have your screen stay on and not hibernate on your Windows 10 laptop.

2. Click on Settings.
3. Click on System.
4. On the left pane click on Power & Sleep.
5. On the right pane, click on Advanced power settings.
6. On the left pane, click on Choose what closing the lid does option.
7. In the new window, look under Power button and lid settings.
8. Along the When I close the lid row, click over both on battery and plugged in and choose Do nothing for both.
9. Click on Save changes located at the bottom.

You should now have your laptop’s screen on at all times. Regardless of whether the lid is open or closed and if you’re not doing anything on it. This will be very handy if you have to read through pages and pages of documentation or if you’re looking at an art work for prolong periods of time.
