Windows Hello doesnt go away when I lock the PC

I have an Asus G14 2022 and I use it mostly with a Samsung 27 inch monitor and I have an external keyboard. Every time I lock the PC, windows hello is constantly flashing red. If I close the Laptop Lid, on the monitor the lock screen comes back and windows hello says "Looking for you". It keeps looking till it cant find me (the laptop lid is closed). I don't have any other Windows Hello devices, so why does it look for me when the lid is closed and how do I fix it?.

 

Also when I lock the PC, and I come back the battery is just tanking and the laptop is burning. Why is this happening when I am not using it?

First forum query.

Sounds like you want to put it in standby instead of locking?

Im not too well-versed in the difference between standby and locking and sleep and hibernate. But my main problem is I want the laptop to stop looking for me when the lid is closed. Is there a way to specify the number of windows hello devices that if one cannot function the laptop stops looking for you?  Also, does windows hello blinking affect battery life or overall lifespan of the PC?

The laptop likely doesn't even have something telling it the camera is part of the lid and thus unavailable when it's closed...

Guess I just have to wait for an update then?

Doubt that is something that would change if it's not in the laptop's hardware design.
