I have a HDMI cable attached to my LG living room tv for watching video streamed in from kodi. After sitting overnight in this configuration the main screen of laptop is blacknwhen opened but its still active on the tv. Bringing up display properties it seems the only display the laptop sees is the tv..anyone know why a laptop would revert to the second display as its primary?

Forgot to mention that in the original post, that I had set the power settings to do nothing when the lid is shut. Just now, I had to hard reboot it..turned on my tv and attempted to find a way to get the laptops main screen to be recognized (had the lid up during this) thru the display settings..no luck, it just shows one display discoverable :/ Then I hear a low beep and lose my wireless mouse..its frozen, leaving me no choice but hard reboot.

I am getting worried that the hard drive will be needing a defrag with all these reboots I have needed to do..
