I just plugged everything in and installed the drivers (and allowed permission to it in security preferences). So far everything is working great. I’ve got 2 displays hooked up via display port. No issues with the laptop going to sleep even with the lid closed since it is getting power through the same USB-C port.
My only issue is the laptop’s display not going to sleep with the laptop’s lid closed. I’m really picky about my monitors having the same resolution & size, so I keep the laptop lid closed. I read some earlier posts about how people just pull the laptop’s screen to the right or left and just ignore it. I set one of my external displays as the ‘main’ display with the menu bar there. I understand the difference between mac and windows here and why this is happening.
I still worry about windows of messaging apps popping up on my laptop’s display and I won’t notice it. Plus I’m just causing unnecessary burn-in with it on all the time but nothing changing on the screen. Any recommendations on how to solve this? Even if it’s a round-about way with 3rd party software.
