Bottom left corner of your desktop, click on your start programs icon. You will see shutdown, hover or click on that. You should see a "Sleep" option. Click on that. Wait until your laptop cycles off and then close your lid. When you return, open your lid and then push your spacebar or most any other key to wake it.

I assume that you mean that you want to close your laptop but not have it turn off.





First, a warning: doing this might cause your laptop to get hotter than expected.





Second: not all computers may support this, and the different ways of doing it will vary depending on what kind of hardware you have.





If you can tell me the model number of your computer (i.e. Dell Inspiron 7380) I might be able to help you or direct you towards a place to find an answer if I can't find one.
