    Laptop Crashes When I Close The Lid

    I am currently on Windows 8.1 Pro through bootcamp on a Macbook Pro 13.3" Early 2015 model.

    The problem occuring is that my computer crashes and shuts down when I close the lid. I'll assume that something is wrong with sleep mode, since it goes into sleep mode when I close the lid.

    It begun after I installed Connectify, but persisted after I uninstalled it. I suspect that it did something to my computer, but I can't seem to find what it did. Can anyone help?

    Features - Connectify
    "Connectify -- Connectify Hotspot is a software router for your Windows PC or laptop. With Connectify Hotspot, you can transform your PC into a real WiFi hotspot, and share your computer's Internet connection as Wi-Fi with any other PC or mobile device."
    Probably registry changes were made, and left made. You have no current, very recent OS partition full image[s] that you can restore? If not, perhaps a System Restore Point? My money's on a full image restore over any SRP.
    Many forums do not promote the usage of any registry editing. I cannot offer a solution other than the above.
