Question about PC Desktops
Well.. you'd still have to open the lid to turn it on, right? (because you didn't mention the model of your laptop, I don't know where the power button actually *is*)
You want to close it while it's on, without it hibernating or going to sleep...
Go to your control panel, then into power or power management (depending on your Windows version, because you didn't mention it)
Then have a look under the "advanced" tab where it asks "when I close the lid of my computer". Set that to "do nothing".
Now when you close the lid, the laptop screen should turn off, but the PC should keep running. I'm not sure if that will still turn your external monitor off though.
I think that is your best solution, other than hacking off the little button that senses when the lid is closed. =-]
