    I haven't tried out a multiple monitor setup since the days when Apple could handle that seamlessly and Windows hadn't even heard of the idea.

    But I just opened up my docked laptop so I could email some of our hardware guys and tell them what model they had issued me. The screen popped on, and I thought of this journal entry, and I wondered: do you know if it's possible for me to use a laptop LCD screen and a monitor screen simultaneously as two independent screens? Or is what's on my video port inextricably tied to what's on my LCD? My laptop sits just to the side of my monitor and this would be perfect for trying out two screens.

    Of course, when I closed the laptop, it went to sleep. Why on earth would a docked laptop need to go to sleep when the lid is closed? Sigh...
