Turning on Laptop In a Vertical Stand

When you have laptop in a vertical stand (not that we would recommend it, gaming laptops use keyboards to cool themselves down), you can't reach the power button to turn it on. There is a workaround.

  • Control Panel → Power Options → Choose what closing the lid does → Set the sleep button and close lid to Sleep
  • Control Panel → Power Options → Change Plan Settings → Sleep → Hibernate after → Set to NEVER for on Battery and Plugged in (skip this part if it doesn’t exist).
  • Then when you’re done for the day engage sleep mode from Start Menu instead of shutdown

You can also create a desktop shortcut that will kick in Sleep mode:

  • On desktop right click → New → Shortcut → Paste command
     rundll32.exe powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState 0,1,0 

When you want to wake your Legion, simply interact with a USB keyboard or mouse
Sleep mode uses negligible power and is perfectly safe to use long term
