LAPTOP 3 OPEN LID WAKE TURN OFF

HI I'm new to the group.. I just purchased the Laptop 3... Great! However, usually after a complete power off, when open the lid I would have to press the power button to turn it on. Perfect!... I haven't changed anything in the system registry or power settings. But now after after having it about six weeks, after a complete power off, when I open the lid it turns on automatically. (I wouldn't mind it if I put it into sleep mode or something, but this is a COMPLETE POWER OFF). Any searching I've done on the web, tells me to enter a string of commands at the Windows PowerShell (admin) and it supposed to reveal the Open Lid Function in the Advanced Power Settings, but it doesn't. I would really like to control when I turn on and off the Laptop 3. Can someone help?

Thanks!
John

Wish I could help, John. Don’t know why you can’t access the options. Is your Surface (policy) managed by an organization?

Try the registry fix.

Also, the first time you shut down after making the change, if you can, do it not by doing a lid close. Shut down fully, then close the lid.

Let us know.
