Why is my Razer Blade's display settings showing 59Hz instead of 60Hz?

There is no difference between 59Hz and 60 Hz, in terms of performance. Both 59Hz and 60 Hz are translated to 59.94 Hz before they are sent to the monitor's chip and should, therefore result in identical performance. The reported 59 Hz setting that cannot be changed even after tweaking the display settings is a result of how Windows reports signals coming from a monitor that uses the old TV-compatible standard of 59.94 Hz.

For backward compatibility, Windows keeps the 59 Hz setting for applications that use the older standard but also reports the 60 Hz setting for applications that require it. You may refer to Windows Support for more information.

Why does the Razer Blade enter sleep mode when placed on top of another closed laptop

Our Razer Blade laptops have sensors that detect the state of the laptop if the lid is closed or not. If a Razer Blade laptop is placed on top of another Razer Blade laptop with a closed lid, then the top laptop might go into sleep mode because it might detect the sensors of the bottom laptop with a closed lid and will think that its lid is closed too. The solution to this is to not place a laptop on top of another laptop.
