  1. Projector settings open with laptop lid


    So I'm having a weird issue, when I closed my laptop lid in Windows 7 and re-opened it the screen would go black for a second and reset my cursor to the center of the screen. Weird issue that I couldn't find a fix for. Well I just upgraded to Windows 10, now when I close and re-open the laptop lid the projector/multi display settings open on the right side of the screen each time. Really strange issue. Any idea how to fix it? Thanks!

    :)

    Duplicate screen won't stay duplicate

    Hi

    I use my laptop with a projector quite often, and use the "duplicate screen" setting that is available. It always used to automatically revert to Duplicate Screen whenever I switched on the projector. Since upgrading to Windows 10, I find that when I close
    the laptop lid or turn off the projector and come to reuse the laptop with the projector again, the laptop display settings have reverted to Extend Screen.

    I should not have to go into display settings or WIN+P in order to change to duplicate screens. What is the matter with Windows 10? It is one problem after another.

    I have installed the latest drivers for the display adapter, I have updated everything else I can think of. What's going on?

  3. Lid setting does not recoginize power status change

    We manage the policy to set the “When I close the lid:” setting on our laptops to "Sleep" on battery and "Do Nothing" on plugged in. In the basic scenarios, the results are expected:

    • With the laptop plugged in, I closed the lid and re-opened. It was not in sleep mode.
    • With the laptop running on battery, I closed the lid and re-opened. It was in sleep mode.

    However, with the laptop plugged in, I close the lid and then unplug the power cable to put it on battery and then opened the lid. It is not in sleep mode. Is this an issue with the Windows 10 power management, or is there
    a setting where this can be corrected?

  4. Projector settings open with laptop lid

    So my experience with sevenforums and tenforums is everyone is useless. Few times I've had a question (that I can't figure out with extensive searching and using Google) and I've come here no one has ever answered. Believe me I hate asking, because no one ever answers. So when I do ask a question it's a genuine concern, not some stupid question I could have figured with a quick Google search.
    If anyone does decide to help I've found my laptop since upgrading to Windows 10 now thinks a external display is attached and whenever I close the lid and reopen it 1. opens the external projector menu and sets my resolution to 1280x720 instead of 1366x768 and I have to reset it each time I open my laptop. With Windows 7 the screen just went black for a second but the resolution never changed.
