Closing lid does not affect on screen setting (doesn't change video output to external monitor)

2016-11-03, 10:26 AM

At the beginning I have to write, that it is NOT a problem with going into hibernation after closing the lid. This function is set off.


The problem is that if I work with expanded desktop (I don't know the exact name of that feature in english, I just have connected external monitor, which shows me other part of my desktop than on laptop screen) and close the lid, nothing changes in display settings. I mean, when I close lid, notebook should know, that the lid is closed, and change the display setting into only one, external monitor (I have that in my previous notebook). My goal is to set the lid, that if I close it, it switch from expanded desktop into my external monitor only and turn off the laptop screen. How can I do it? My laptop is Lenovo Y50-70 with GTX 960M.
