If you power up the laptop with the top closed doesn't it use the
external display?
Do you have a docking bay? Same idea.
If the power button is not external, power it up then shut the top?

Using a docking bay and the lid closed, after eCS boots, the external
monitor is black (which is different than no signal - which my monitor
tells me about). When I open the lid, I get a display on the monitor.
When I close the lid, the monitor goes black.

When I do get a display, it is a subset of full screen (which can be panned).
