When an external monitor is connected, xrandr shows me two displays:
eDP1 (laptop screen) and
DP1 (external monitor).
I can enable the external monitor just fine, but if I unplug the external monitor, or disable it with
xrandr --output DP1 --off, the laptop screen goes blank too (though still backlit). I believe I can still switch to a tty on the laptop screen.
Any ideas how to keep my laptop screen running after disabling/disconnecting the external monitor?
If it matters, I'm using i3.
