Close the lid on my notebook and continue working on external monitor.

I am running Vista on a Dell Studio. I have external monitor connected. I would like to close the lid on the notebook and continue working but the com puter turns off when I close the lid. I previously had a Dell Inspiron 6000 with an options for no actions when the lid is closed.

Hi,

Control Panel - Power Options - upper left - Choose what closing the lid does.

Also check the Power Plans there after you change the above - or Right Panel
(White) Change Plan Settings and also check Advanced Settings.

Hope this helps.
