Thanks Chuck, that worked I can close it now. As an aside, the computer was set to "standby" not hibernate, just curious, what is the difference between standby and hibernate anyway?
However, I assume this will mean that everytime I unplug from the monitor I will have to change it, assuming that I want it to hibernate or standby when I close the lid?
Thanks again, Chuck!
Hi Again. I have to take another look at neighbors plugs.
My wife bougt a Dell Replicator about 2 years ago. Paid about 200$ It works great. Does everything. Dell apparently no longer offers it.
Important thing re gettting a new replicator. Make sure it has an on off button. This allows you to turn laptop on without having to open it to press the On button on the laptop. Her laptop has not been open in months.
She has 19 inch Flat screen plugged into the replicator. System works like a dream.
Going to do more replicator research for my neighbor. If you want, I will share results of that research with you.
