Bug Description

When I plug an external screen to my notebook an switch off the notebook screen in the gnome-display-properties, it should be possible to close the notebook without affecting the external screen. So deactivating the power management option automatically.
This is the workaround:
gconftool-2 --set /apps/gnome-power-manager/buttons/lid_ac --type string "nothing"

affects: gnome-desktop (Ubuntu) → gnome-settings-daemon (Ubuntu)

importance: Undecided → Low

When I close the notebook, it automatically activates the setting to show the same content on both screens and the screen resolution on the external screen changes to the max. of my notebook. I set it back and than the same happens when I open the notebook again. So my external screen is always influenced when i open or close the notebook.
Did I express it well enough?
@dank: no it's not.
