Good question. I was just curious to know how widespread problem that is.
I tend to use my laptop in the docking station, only using external monitor,
so it's annoying when testing new alpha/beta/final Fedora releases
and Fedora uses the internal lvds, under the *closed* lid, as a primary display..
ie. the installer/livedesktop is not visible at all on my setup, until I open the lid.
So just trying to find some kind of workaround to that..
Using "clone-mode" as a default would solve the problem..
(now the default mode in Fedora is to use "extended desktop")
