The “Do nothing” option is missing from the lid close action

Question

Why is the “Do nothing” missing from the "When I close the lid menu list of the Windows 8 Power" options?

Answer

This is by design on the VAIO models listed below that are running original VAIO Windows 8 build.

Reason

The air exhaust vents are located between the LCD hinges and, if the LCD lid is closed while the notebook keeps running, there is a risk of obstructing airflow and reducing cooling efficiency.
