Monitor turns black when I close my laptop lid
You're all set up to watch a nice long video on your connected monitor, so you close your laptop, sit back and... Wait, why did the monitor turn black? By default, most laptops go to sleep when they are closed, even when an external monitor is connected. However, it's pretty easy to adjust this setting.
