Windows 7: External Monitor Problem in Windows 7

External Monitor Problem in Windows 7

I have Windows 7 64-bit RC on my laptop and I have also an external monitor (dell xps m1330 and 22" LG W2261V).
In my vista 32-bit (dual-boot) after I plugged the external monitor I had an option to view only in the external monitor, and it works well, even if I open and close and open the laptop's lid the xps screen is shut-down and only the external monitor is on.
BUT in Windows 7 every time I open the laptop's lid the xps screen is turned on and I have to press WIN+P every time, over and over, just to put the view only in the external monitor.

How can I do it for good?
