How to get laptop to correctly work as a desktop with peripherals?

Metin:

My old desktop is painfully slow, so I am switching over to use my son's Sony VAIO laptop.  But I have eye issues which requires I use a large-screen monitor, so I am trying to set the laptop up as a desktop.  So far, I have been successful in attaching the monitor and external mouse/keyboard to the laptop using HDMI & USB ports.  For security, I have also hooked-up an Ethernet cord directly from my router to the laptop, rather than use Wi-Fi.  My next step will be to hook-up the printer, hopefully.

The only problem I have yet to resolve is how to be able to turn on the laptop & then keep it from going to sleep when I shut the laptop (having the laptop's screen open  & on while using the external monitor's screen instead bothers my eyes.)

I want to be able to turn off or put the laptop to sleep "on-demand", but otherwise be able to close the laptop cover and keep it "on" (and not going to sleep or shutting-down)  while I am working on it as a "desktop".

I thought I changed the settings correctly based on a video or 2 I saw online about converting a laptop to a desktop, but it doesn't seem to work.  Deskspace is limited, and I had hoped to close the laptop lid & set my keyboard on top of it while I work.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
