TeamViewer not showing RDP session if laptop lid is closed

I make use of TeamViewer to logon to my laptop remotely, which is always on and plugged in (but with the lid closed).

I’m finding that if I have an RDP session open, it’ll either be frozen and unresponsive if it’s an existing session, or if I try a new RDP session it’ll just be a black window. To me, it’s like it’s not rendering new graphics for the RDP window as it’s determined it doesn’t need to because the lid is closed.

Is there a way around this, either via TeamViewer itself or somehow changing my laptop settings? Unfortunately I’m not able to TeamViewer directly to my RDP session machines
