Just turn the backlight setting [ctrl+F1] all the way to the lowest setting. The LCD will appear to be off and this might extend its lifespan, if that is your goal here. Your external monitor will not be affected by this action.

battery life is not an issue but thank you. i was wondering if it was possible to completely have the case shut just for connivence.

Screen spanning doctor allows you to enable "clamshell" mode, but as Padawan I also advise against it. The unit vents from the keyboard and you will damage the screen.
