Thanks! Will it still shut down the monitor on my laptop when i close the lid? in the last week or so i've been lookin into getting a new desktop PC and I have to buy all the bells and whistles(monitor, case, etc...). I've decided to hold off a little bit on most everything, but I figured if I went ahead and got a monitor, keyboard, and mouse that I knew i'd be using with the desktop in the future then it would cut back on cost when I actually do buy my rig.
Just something I would like to add....
A lot of laptops will go into hibernate or sleep mode when the lid is shut and the power is on. You can change this in the power options under the control panel on your system.
