    When I close the lid of my dell laptopit works fine but when I open the lid
    it goes into standby (I think it must have something to do with USB settings
    working in reverse as I get that clink USB connection sound when I open and
    close the lid)

    I obviously have to use an external monitor, keyboard and mouse... and ideas
    please how to sort this ?

    Look in the Power Management settings for whatever operating system
    you use. Something like "When I close the laptop, do this..."
