can you get to the control panel/power settings click on hard drive to never turn off. you could also make sure it screen does not go into sleep mode

Fn F6 will cycle through 3 options (but is slow to change)

laptop screen only

external only

laptop screen + external

give it a few seconds to settle in each option

My laptop stays in last option when switched off, so if I've used it for a presentation, next time I switch on the screen will not light up until I have cycles the Fn F keys
