I've been using a MBA and thunderbolt monitor for my desktop system for four months and have been extremely happy with everything. Last week I turned on file vault and ever since I have to completely log into my account before closing the MBA and having the monitor turn on. Before as soon as the MBA screen came on I could close it and the thunderbolt monitor would turn on. This is kind of awkward because I'm using a book arc stand tucked into the back of my credenza with the cords extended to the limit. Has anyone else run into this or have a solution? Also, does anyone think apple will ever make an extension for the power/thunderbolt cord on the back of the monitor?
