How to keep external monitor on after opening laptop lid
I have a laptop which is connected to an external monitor through a HDMI cable. Sometimes when I'm using the external monitor for watching a movie or playing a game I close the laptop lid. If I need to type for a second, when I open the laptop it automatically changes from the external display to the laptop display. This sometimes crashes certain applications and games. I would much prefer if it didn't automatically change my current screen when I plugged in a HDMI cable or when I opened the laptop lid. Is this possible?
