    Is there a way to do this? I have tried plugging a mouse in while closed but the computer doesn't wake up. Is there a way to activate clamshell without an external display being plugged in?

    Thanks

    Nice:) I assume that the internal display is kept off correct?

    If you use the F1 key to turn it off, then yes.

    Nevermind, I do see that the screen does automatically turn off when the lid is closed without needing to turn the brightness all the way down
