    i would like to use the Surface Pro 6 with a 4K external monitor with the type covered close as in the photo. I stopped at a Microsoft Store in the mall and was told it can not be used this way because closing the type cover puts the Surface Pro 6 to sleep, but you can have the lid of any regular laptop closed and use it with an external display. I’m not sure I was given the correct info.

    You can. Just set the 'When I close the lid' action, within the power options, to 'Do nothing'.

    Easy.

    (Or at least that has worked before)
