      I have the same issue. I’ve changed the settings as detailed above and my monitor still turns off when closing the lid of the laptop. I have changed the settings to ‘Do Nothing’ when closing the lid with and without plugged into power. Any ideas?

        Control Panel\System and Security\Power Options\Edit Plan Settings/Change advanced power settings
        From here expand on “Display …Turn off display after” and select NEVER on battery and plugged in

        Hope this helps

          Thank you this worked, but for me it was the “Power buttons and lid” option which had it set to sleep if I closed the lid.

      Which port are you using to connect to the external monitor? VGA port will not transmit audio while HDMI will..
