As far as the laptop being closed, you may have to turn off the power managment options in the control panel some laptops allow you to close them, and still display the lcd screen. Yet still I have seen some laptops where you can install the monitor driver software and then it will allow you to close the laptop.
Again depending on the laptop, if it is a dell or some other brand you can buy a docking station directly from the company, and you can keep the laptop closed, and still have a monitor plugged in. It really depends on the brand of laptop, and how the power management settings are set.
Hope this helps ya.
