Do you have any Minidumps?

Lid down suspends the PC, so suspend is not working correctly. Some manufacturers have difficulty with power management. I use Lenovo and power management works fine on it.

I suggest you look for, download and upgrade BIOS, Chipset, Video, Power Management drivers and when all installed run Windows Update - Critical and Recommended. Do a final restart and test.

Run this System File Checker two or three time

to run System File Checker:

Open cmd.exe with Run as Administrator and run SFC /SCANNOW.
Allow to complete, restart or, preferably, shut down the computer and then start up again.
Test to see if the suspend problem has been corrected.

Normally, however, it is a driver that causes suspend issues.
