Will I be able to close the latop up and still use the monitor without the screen going black. Is there a setting I need to check in the control panel? If so, how do I navigate to that setting e.g.,
Ctl Panel >>>Monitors>>> (it's an HP Laptop Pavilion running Windows XP)?

Thanks.

Go to Control Panel then Power Options and for the laptops lcd change the settings for sleep mode and for what happens when you close the lid on the laptop. Shouldnt need a docking station.
