Answers :

Hey,
\015\012
\015\012the power options must be set so, that if the cover is closed the laptop goes into stand by or sleep mode. You simply need to adjust this setting.
\015\012
\015\012In windows vista, press start, and then press on Control panel, then on the left side, click on Classic View.
\015\012
\015\012Now in the icons, find Power Options and open it.
\015\012
\015\012Since your using the laptop at home with the power adapter plugged in, change plan to Balanced or High Performance.
\015\012
\015\012Ones you have selected the plan you wish to use, then click on Change plan settings. Then click on Change advanced power settings.
\015\012
\015\012I actually don't have a laptop here with me right now to check which is it, but the option should definitely be there, look around the power options (that opened from Change advanced power settings) you should find something to the direction, lid closed or cover closed. Then change the setting to, do noting or no action.
\015\012
\015\012If the problem is not solved, please let me know, we can do a remote support session and I can find the setting for you and fix the problem.
\015\012
\015\012Thank you,

You will need the input slot for the monitor and probly set that up somehow in the bios or you might have to get a switchbox so you can switch back and forth to the monitor and laptop
