    Finally got around to testing. I can confirm Valentin's suggestion below is a successful workaround for me (so far anyway).

    I didn't realise you could selectively choose to only mirror one screen. In the Display preference, go to the Arrangement tab. Then hold the 'Alt' key on your keyboard and drag one of your external monitors onto the built in display.

    Thanks Vikas, I just gave that a try. It "works" on 1.4 for me in that the screen stops flickering. However it keeps the screen "live" so apps often open on it and the cursor can get lost on it. So less than ideal and defeats the purpose of having the laptop closed.

    I will give it a shot on 5.25 tomorrow when I have more time.
