Power on P50 with display is closed

2021-05-23, 8:26 AM

Hi all.

My name's Mauro. Nice to meet you here in this forum.

 


I have a P50 and I buy a hub usb-c wih two hdmi port.

Can I switch on the P50 after I  connect the hub usb-c leaving the display closed?

 


I have another W530 with its docking station and with this I can switch on because there is the power button on docking station.

 

Thanks to all

 

MZ

Hello mauzil,

 


Welcome to Lenovo Community

I checked the ThinkPad P50 PSREF  and the available ports are as follows:
Four USB 3.0 (one Always On), USB Type-C / Thunderbolt 3, Mini DisplayPort,
HDMI, Ethernet (RJ-45), Dock connector
 
You can connect the external monitor directly into the HDMI, USB C or mini display port directly.
Kindly check these links below for additional info on external display:

Hope this helps
