TheÂ Enable forced button/lid shutdownÂ power plan setting inÂ Power OptionsÂ specifies the type of system shutdown that occurs when the lid is closed or the power button is pressed if theÂ Lid close actionÂ and/orÂ Power button actionÂ is set toÂ Shut down.
WhenÂ Enable forced button/lid shutdownÂ is turned off (default), a normal full shutdown of the computer is performed.
WhenÂ Enable forced button/lid shutdownÂ is turned on, a forced shutdown of the computer is performed. This forces running apps to close, and then performs a full shutdown of the computer. Any open documents might not be saved and data loss could occur.
