    Turn display off when using external?

    Will the display scaling also automatically switch from 150% to 100%?

    Attach SP2 to external monitor

    Scaling improvements in Windows 8.1 do include setting level differently for each monitor. I assumed that is for stationary setups such as desktops. I will be docking and undocking often so what I'm asking is for the display to show only on #2 external monitor when docked with scaling...

    Attach SP2 to external monitor

    I'm also planning on connect it to an external monitor via DVI if/when I get my Surface Pro 2. The article here talks about blurry Windows rendered at one scale level then moved to another. I only want the display to show on my #2 external monitor when docked at my desk. I'm wondering if the...

    Here is a picture of an Acer Aspire 5733 running Windows 8.1 Pro that I've borrowed. When I close the lid, the screen turns off and I can still remote desktop into it. When I open the lid the screen instantly turns back on.

    I have considered similar ultrabooks and tablets from other manufacturers but the Surface design and keyboard implementation looks appealing to me. I do hope to get the Power Cover with the tablet for next semester in January if I decide go with Microsoft. I can live with metro apps not running...

    Metro IE11 and Xbox Video for example suspends whenever they get moved to the background so is there any way to prevent that from happening? On laptops the display can be turned off while everything else remaining functional with "When I close the lid: Do nothing" but I don't know how that will...

    Hello, I'm a first time poster here and a college student that's considering getting the Surface Pro 2 as my first Windows 8 tablet/laptop/desktop but I do have some reservation I hope experienced users can answer. The first is running music or video metro apps in the background while I'm using...
