    windows 10

    frustrating


    i have a new HP laptop that i bought last month for school. it has windows 10 on it. last few days though, when i close the lid to hibernate it, it closes all my tabs and Chrome, my microsoft office, anything that is open, it will close. i dont always bookmark places. i leave everything open so i can get back to work quickly. but i cant do that now and i guess my question is, is there a way to fix this?? it takes me forever to find where i was and it takes me forever to get back to work.

    Click 'Choose what closing the lid does'

    That's not new in Win 10- been there for years in the Control Panel.

    (Don't know why your setting changed though).
    You can check you have hibernate enabled:
    Click Power in your Win 10 start menu and check Hibernate is one of the options.

    see here is the thing, it never did it before. when i close the lid, it hibernates. and it wouldnt close my programs. but now it does. i dont want to leave it on all the time. thats why i havent changed it. i have kids and pets here that like to get into things. i cant afford to have anything happen to my paper that i am writing for school. guess i will figure something else out. ty

    That's great and stuff, but let's get back to the rational world. Again, what does your "Choose what closing the lid does" setting say?

    Do nothing, sleep, hibernate, shut down.

    Make sure you have hibernate enabled. That's the rational world for you.
