If your display adapter does not support this, then it's not going to
happen. When it's available may be a factor as well. Example: May not work
running off of A/C but work when connected to a docking station. However,
even with a docking station, you may find as I do with my tablet PC that
the PC is still the primary display.
Check documentation for your system to see what features for second monitor
are available to you and what conditions might apply.
