I have a laptop running Mint 13.
I have it hooked up to a 30" monitor and have no use for the laptop being open, so I put it on a shelf and close it. When I do that, the monitor goes blank. The power manager does not have an option for doing nothing when the lid is closed. The options are "Blank Screen", "Suspend", and "Shutdown".
Is there a way to make the laptop not go to a blank screen when the lid is closed?
