I have a shiny new LCD television, and I have set it up to connect to my Thinkpad laptop. I set it as a second display, so that I can use the full 1920x1080 of the TV. In the "Monitors" settings menu I have the TV set to be above the laptop screen. This all works just fine - exactly as I want. Even if I log off and/or reboot it still comes back the way I want it.
However, when I close the lid the output stops most of the time. When I open the lid the computer seems to cycle through the output options - the same as pressing the Fn + F7 button combo.
What does the lid shutting trigger this change? How can I force the computer to completely ignore the "lid shut" signal?
