Anyone else have a problem connecting to this laptop when the lid is closed? I have my software development environment all set up on this machine and everything customized the way I like. I had to abandon it for a while because of bsod issues, but the latest BIOS seems to have fixed fix that. I was ready to have hope again, but then the "Intel HD Driver has stopped working" (over and over again) issue came back. So I decided to use another, less powerful machine and remote into this one to do my development work.
But I can't remote in when the lid is closed (Yes, I have set the power options appropriately and the firewall is set correctly -- I can remote in, no problem if the lid is up).
This machine is a bad joke. I have had it since November 2015 - almost half a year. The re-installs and the troubleshooting have cost me (in my time) much more than what I paid for it and, during the brief times when I had hope and thought it was working, sudden "HD Driver has stopped working" problems have undermined my professional credibility as a developer during desktop sharing sessions.
The only happy thing is that I never had enough hope that it will work to actually waste more money on a TB15 dock.
If anyone has a quick solution, let me know. I am past wasting lots of time trying several combinations of drivers. Been there, done that.
No computer purchase in 25 years as a software developer has even come close to being this awful.
