And I thought a flipped screen was bad! Oh my!
There is a program that you can install to help prevent this from happening. It is called PawSense
Please click on and read the link above. Great program to have if your mother has a habit of letting her cats walk all over her and the keyboard as I do or if anyone has a habit of leaving the top to their laptop open when they walk away from it when cats are around.
There is also a way to configure laptop settings so that you can close the lid and it will not shut off.
To set a laptop to do nothing when the lid is closed:
Go to > Start > Power Options
and in the left pane look for Choose what closing the lid does
Next to When I close the lid
click on the drop down arrow to the right and choose Do Nothing
. Do this for both On battery
and for Plugged in
then make sure to click on Save Changes
at the bottom.
Hopefully the above will help prevent this in the future.
