Lenovo Yoga 920 closed lid with DL-3900

How can I get my Yoga 920 to stay on with the lid closed? I’m using two external monitors and an external keyboard and mouse with a Plugable DL-3900. All is working except when I close the lid. It all goes black. Thanks.

Hello, Thanks for posting! We had received a direct email from you regarding this question and we have responded directly. I will paste the reply for setting the Windows Power Options to assist closing the laptop lid:

In order to use the external monitors with the lid closed you will need to change the Windows Power settings. To do so please right-click on the Start button and select ‘Power Options’ from the menu. From the left side choices, please click on ‘Choose what closing the lid does’. You should see a screen similar to my below screenshot. We want to make sure the setting for ‘When I close the lid’ under the ‘Plugged In’ column is set to ‘Do Nothing’. Click the ‘Save Changes’ button and restart the system and test with the laptop lid closed.


Thank you,
