Last time I used an external monitor, my lappie was in a docking station and there was a monitor stand above the docking station upon which the monitor sat which prevented the laptop from being open at the same time. So it is possible. Have you asked Dell ?

Go into Control Panel/Power Options/Advanced. There should be an option for lid behavior. Change it to not go to sleep when the lid is closed.
