24 inch display has been working perfectly up to now, but has today decided that whenever I close the screen on my MacBookPro, the display plays copy-cat and goes to sleep as well. Hardly the end of the world, as I can happily work with the laptop open, but it's a bug of some kind. Or I'm doing something stupid...

Any thoughts? is it obvious?!

Many thanks

    It's easy. With a USB or wireless keyboard functioning, or a mouse - close your laptop's cover and put the computer to sleep. A few seconds later, push any key on the keyboard or button on the mouse and the Cinema Display should come on. You'll be able to work with the external display as your primary and the laptop closed.
