Technical Question - External Monitor issue

Gang,

I just purchased an HP G72-B66 laptop computer. I have it connected via HDMI cable to an HP 24" external monitor.

Here is the problem: When I close the laptop lid, it causes my laptop to go to sleep and the external monitor to lose the image.

On my last laptop, as soon as I hit the power on button, I closed the lid and never lifted it again... everything was done on the external monitor. I do not remember any special settings to make it work that way.

Would anyone have any suggestions for me to get the same effect with the new laptop?

Thanks,

William
