A few months ago, I purchased a GF65 Thin 9SEXR. It has been performing wonderfully up until recently, where the slightest adjustment of the screen causes it to go into sleep mode, forcing me to power it back on. After reading many posts on other forums, I figured out via the event log that the machine did in fact think it was closing, putting it into sleep mode as a result. Many of the posts suggested changing my settings as to prevent it from turning off when "closed," but I would rather resolve the issue outright, and, for what it's worth, I cannot for the death of me get it to stop sleeping when "closed," and suspect some third-party software of overriding my power settings, though that's beside the point. Though I believe this to be in part a hardware problem, it began pretty much exactly when I installed an update for Windows, of which I do not remember the details. I would rather not make use of my warranty and send it in, as I use this laptop for everything from school to communicating with friends, and would like to know if there's something I could do to resolve this. I consider myself somewhat tech-savvy, and have some experience tinkering and fixing electronics, though I'd rather not risk damaging my laptop. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
