I have an Dell inspirion 6400 laptop and i've connected a external monitor to it.But when i close the laptopscreen the laptop goes to "sleep". how can undo this?
Lets see if this helps you.
Click on start, control panel and look for Power Options. Look for an option or link for "Choose what closing the lid does". Then simply select "Do Nothing".
See if it helps
