I would simply close the laptop lid to keep dust off the keyboard and power off the screen.

As no desktop manager is running you need to edit /etc/systemd/logind.conf and change this line:

#HandleLidSwitch=suspend

to this:

HandleLidSwitch=ignore

Save the file and use systemctl restart systemd-logind
