Every time i connect my Surface to the Dock, the Display of the Surface goes black and switches over to my external monitor. I don’t want that, because my monitor is off most of the time and i have to turn it on just to switch back to my surface display. Can i somehow tell my Surface NOT to switch the display when i connect to the Dock?? Author Posts You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
