    Choose Power Options and then select Choose What Closing the Lid Does from the left pane
    Choose the option you want from the drop-down list
    Click Save Changes to make your changes permanent, and close the Power Options window

    You just need to change the setting what happens when you close your lid of PC.

    -> Select the power options from taskbar after clicking Battery icon.
    -> Now you will see a window like this





    Now choose " Hibernate" happens when " I close the lid" .

    Here you can chose separate options , when PC is on battery or when it is Plugged in.

    Go to "Control Panels" off the START menu and you'll see this:
    Click on the section title "System and Security" and you'll see the many, many things you can adjust to have the system behave as you'd prefer:
    Scroll down to find the power options and click on the link "Change what the power buttons do" to reach the key area we seek:
    Notice that the third option is "When I close the lid" and the behavior can be different based on if you're plugged in or running on battery. I have mine set to "sleep" so I'll go ahead and change it to "hibernation" as per Microsoft's recommendation

    Go to Control Panel from Start ans choose System and Security. From that go for Power Options and choose Change what the Power buttons do and select 'when I Close LID'.

    You can select the option from the Drop down List. You may keep anything from Sleep to Hibernate. Choose it from the Drop down Box.
