    How can I turn the tablet ON while lid is closed using the power button on top.

    Hi All

    I am trying to turn the Tablet T100 on while the lid is closed using the power button on the top. It seems that while the lid is closed some thing keeps the tablet from turning on. Is there any setting of regedit that I can do that will allow me to turn the tablet on while the lid is closed as I am using it as a mini desktop most of the time and have a monitor plugged in so I don't need the tablet open at all.

    Also any hints or tips on how you might have set yours up as a great mini desktop. I have a wireless keyboard and mouse and a good size screen wondering about sound.

    I have been looking for a while and can only find the problem of tablets turning on when its not wanted.

    Cheers all
    Ray

    Everything you want to do can be done with power settings and screen brightness settings. i.e. "do nothing" when closing lid, turn screen brightness all the way down.

    I get 8-12 hrs use per charge using SLEEP mode. Warning, NEVER calibrate the touchscreen.

    Sorry I may not explained what I'm trying to do right. I want the tablet on the desk turned off with the lid closed and then without opening the lid turn the tablet on by pressing the power button.

    I have all the settings as you mentioned and still no luck.
    Cheers

    In power settings, do you have the T100 set to "do nothing" when the lid is closed?

    Yep have it set to do nothing, both on battery and powered. O I think it might have something to do with the Asus's programming ie BIOS rather than windows setting. Basically you can press the power button all you like while the device is closed and nothing will happen, I'm sure this is a good thing in most cases as it would save it from turning on accidentally in a bag.

    Have you tried just moving your mouse or tapping the ctrl key on the keyboard?

    When I get home I can check my power management settings, but mine is always in sleep mode. So, I just turn on the monitor and move my mouse and the t100 wakes up with the lid shut.

    You can remove the magnet in dock so it never detect the T100 being closed. Then you can have full control with power button.
