B575 laptop mystery-



I have owned my B575 for about 8 months and have been pleased with it.  I recently decided to hook an external keyboard, monitor, mouse to the box, essentially porting without a port, but I can't figure out how to run my new setup using only the external monitor with the laptop closed.  Can this not be done on this model?  Sorry for the noob question; I have scoured the 'net and this forum and can't find an answer to my question.


Thanks in advance,
