    My buddy has alaptop that the screen is going on it so hes plugged in an external monitor..When he boots up it shortly says going to standby and the monitor turns off.....Is there a setting to make the external monitor stay on..

    i already tried going to power options in the control panel and it says never for turning the monitor off but that must be for the laptops original screen(monitor)...so thats not the problem here..Does anyone know what may be?

    Yanman :confused:
