How To Change What The Power Button Does When You Press On It
In all modern versions of Windows, you can choose what your PC does when you push the power button. We mean the power button found on your computer case, on your laptop, on your tablet or 2-in-1 device.
1. Open Start Menu > Control Panel > System and Security > Power Options.
2. Right under “Power Options,” you’ll see a link called “Change what the power buttons do.” Click on it. If you prefer, you can also first click to open the “Power Options,” and then click on “Change what the power button does” on the left side of the window.
3. From the opened “Define power buttons and turn on password protection" window. Look for the section called “Power button settings.” There’s only one setting in it, called “When I press the power button.” On its right, there’s a drop-down list with all the options available on your computer.
4 . Choose what you’d like your Windows computer or device to do when you press the power button.
5. Once you have selected what you want to happen when you press the power button, click on the “Save changes” button.
Note that if you have a Windows device with a battery, such as a laptop or a tablet, you will be able to choose two different actions for when you press the power button: one thing for when the device is running on battery and another for when it’s connected to a power main.
Also, if your Windows device has a dedicated Sleep button, you might see an additional drop-down list dedicated to it, as you can see in the screenshot above.
