    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    If you have a docking station so you can start the computer with the cover closed, then it will automatically switch to the external port. If you don't have a docking station, then you might be able to close the cover quickly enough after hitting the power button to get the same effect. Don't know about that.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
