Personally... There should be an option for the laptop lid to be closed
when docked. I have Dell with two HDMI monitors attached to my docking
station. Since 17.10 upgrade, I have to run with the laptop lid open.
Should I power up with the lid closed, I see the boot sequence on
Monitor one until LXE Window Mgr starts, then the screen blanks. Xfce-
power-manager options for "Plugged in" should be "Switch off (Laptop
Screen Only)", "Suspend", "Lock Screen". It appears that "Switch off
Display" shuts down the Docking Station Video Ports as well.
