When the lid is shut, does it cut off the Internet until the lid is opened again?

As long as I have the Internet set to 'connect automatically' it should just be a case of opening the laptop and being connected immediately shouldn't it? Or does the Internet stay connected even when the lid is closed?

Will probs depend on what your power saving settings are on your laptop



check its set to standby/hibernate with lid closed, even when plugged in

If I want the Internet to turn off when the lid is closed and then connect when it opens what settings should I be checking/changing?

I have my mother set up on a laptop via an Internet stick. She only needs to use it occasionally when receiving video calls. Trying to teach her how to disconnect and reconnect to the correct wifi would be a nightmare.

And I don't want her online all the time using up her weekly Internet allowance when it's not in use. Does that make sense?

Remove the dongle and you have to go through the sign in process again. Surely there must be a way of leaving it in and it disconnecting when the laptop lid is closed?
