Close Latitude E6420 without powering it off?

When using a docking station (Dell E-Port Plus) is it possible to close the laptop completely withOUT it turning off?

Welcome to Dell Community.

You can keep the computer turned on even after closing the lid of the computer. You just have to change the settings in Power options as per your requirement.

For Windows XP - 

1. Open Power Options by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Maintenance, and then clicking Power Options. 
2. On the Select a power plan page, click Change plan settings under the selected plan.
3. On the Change settings for the plan page, click Change advanced power settings.
4. On the Advanced settings tab select the options and choose accordingly.
