Win XP restart w/ closed laptop
I've got Windows XP home edition on a Hewlett Packard Laptop.
I'm using it as a desktop with external monitor, keyboard, mouse.
The computer is shut, when I go to restart the computer in windows it won't restart, it only shutsdown. I am assuming this is due to the closed lid.
I've checked in control panel, power options, nothing there ( only actions to take when someone shuts the lid, not if it's already shut )
i also tried running 'shutdown -r' from the command line, same story, it only shuts down, not restarts, anyone have any ideas?
