Stop Power Manager switching off extra display when lid is closed

Hello!

I've just installed Manjaro Linux with XFCE on my laptop. If I'm at home I tend to plug a monitor, keyboard and mouse in and shut the laptop lid. When I've used XFCE before this hasn't been a problem, but Power Manager doesn't seem to provide an option to make this possible.

I haven't had this problem before (on Slackware 14.1 and current) - but I'm guessing Power Manager wasn't installed then.

Am I missing something? Or do I just need to uninstall the Power Manager?

Thanks!

Hello and welcome to the forum, sorry for the late response!

There's a profiles feature in the Display Settings app:

I think you can get what you want with it.
