External screen

Back on earlier operating systems, e.g. Snow Leopard, Leopard and Tiger, you could plug in an external screen, flip down the lid on your Mac Laptop and then activate the computer by either connecting an external USB peripheral (such as a mouse or a keyboard) or use the front row emote to turn on the computer again, with the internal screen off, hence it's only using the external screen.


This is no longer functioning as it should. Does anyone know of a fix?

Exactly what I'm also looking for. I use an external monitor but like to keep the lid open because of the sound speaker. But now it will always enable the main monitor if I open the lid, witch affects negatively the performance...
