turns off and the display of the external monitor turns on.
Note: This option is available when there is only one external monitor connected to the dock.
• Off: When you select this option, the display of external monitor(s) turn off and the display of your
notebook computer monitor turns on. However, the other functions such as audio, Ethernet, and USB
connection can still work though the display is off.
