I want my laptop screen to stay on when I close the lid. I already set it up so it doesn’t sleep or shutdown when the lid closes, but the LCD turns off anyways. Is the a registry value or any other way to do this?
I’m testing the durability of a laptops hinge on an automated machine and would like to be able to periodically check in and see whether the screen is still functioning properly, as an active display allows for the possibility of a short to happen within the LCD’s ribbon cable, if the coating wore away somehow. The current setup with the screen turning off and on when the lid closes and opens simply wears out the backlight.
