Red face Laptop perfomance bogged down after standby

I have my laptop setup so it doesn't go into standby or turn off hard disks if the power cable is plugged in it. But when I close it... it still goes into standby. So when I open it back up it takes forever to come out of standby and it runs really slow so I end up restarting anyways. How can I prevent standby mode when closing the laptop?

Dell E1705
Intel Core 2 Duo 2.0GHz T7200
2GB DDR2 667MHz
80GB 5400RPM HDD
256MB nVidia 7900 GeForce Go
