It's easier than you think!
Using a laptop with an external monitor and some peripheral accessories is a great way to create an effective workstation, especially if you've got one of the best computer monitors. Something that can be annoying about this setup, however, is the fact that closing the lid of your laptop to save on space will also put the device to sleep. This will cut off the display signal to the monitor. Thankfully, you can easily solve this problem by changing a few settings in Windows 10. By doing this, you'll be able to make it so that your laptop doesn't go to sleep when you close its lid.
