Hello,
My laptop Dell Inspirion N5010 is connected with AV receiver via HDMI. When i am listening only music from laptop and i close the lid, receiver turns off after 5 minutes (power saving is set to do nothing when close lid). Are there any suggestions what to do, that AV wouldn't turn off when lid is closed?

P.S. When playing music, TV is turned off.

Although you have set the lid to do nothing, all the rest of the power saving features are still active.

Go into Control Panel, Power Options, and then adjust the plan settings to prevent it being turned off.

Hope this helps
