When you close the lid and open it back up, the screen will become active again. Same goes for if you hotkey it to standby and back up - screen's back for a short amount of time.
This leads me to believe there is an issue with the mechanism that shuts the monitor off when one closes the lid.
I thought I remembered seeing a cmd line for disabling that mechanism in a forum, but can't find it now that I need it (of course).
Can anyone give me a little help?
Thanks very much,
