Closing Lid

This has been happening for a while and is getting a little annoying...

I have a Dell Latitude D530. When I close the lid when the computer is on, it shuts off after a few seconds (there's that little 'power down' noise). Upon reopening the lid, I get a blue screen that tells me that 'the system has recovered from a serious error,' et cetera.

I've rooted around online, but so far I haven't found much. There've been a few problems with the lid and Linux, but I'm currently running Windows XP. Is this a common problem, or do I just happen to have a sucky computer?

Any and all help would be appreciated.

Re: Closing Lid

Hmm... I would contact Dell... My guess would be it's a communication problem between the hardware and Windows, and they want to be doing very different things.

Re: Closing Lid

What's the computer set to do on closing the lid, hibernate or shut down? Does hibernation cause the same error?
