The flashing orange light usually means that the battery is being charged from the mains-powered charger unit.
When battery is charged fully that light should change to green

Laptop makes may differ though .. for example when my laptop is charging the orange light is on, but it does not flash .. it stays on orange until it is fully charged, then changes to green

I am not sure I am understanding your problem ... in your first post you wrote
my laptop power button flashes orange while i am charging and the lid was close
...
and now you write
when i charge my laptop + the lid is closed it does not flashes orange color it's just completely off


So which of your above statements is the correct one?

If your laptop is in sleep mode the Indicator Lamp will Flash Orange to show its Sleeping.

I would say no issues. You can always unplug the power and see if the battery acts normal or if it dies quickly.
