12.04 - hdmi switch causes laptop to log out
I have an acer 6935 with ubuntu 12.04, Connected to an external LG monitor via hdmi out, through a hdmi switch (In order to have ps3 by hdmi too, without moving cables). I can get ubuntu to detect and display to the monitor just fine, through nvidia settings, but when I press the button to switch to the ps3 display, ubuntu logs out, shutting down any running programs.
Windows on my laptop when I press the button, will revert to the laptop display only, and not kill any programs. Can anyone help me find out why this is happening?
I've never had a problem with Windows I couldn't solve by installing Ubuntu.
