A second option is to turn down the lid, which will turn of the display
and use the laptop with an external keyboard. Turning down the lid will
certainly not shut down the laptop if an option which says do nothing
when the lid is turned down is enabled.

I use the laptop battery savour from http://www.techno-vision.co.uk.
device plugs into the video port of the laptop.  The laptop thinks that
external monitor is connected.  This, allows you to set the external
as the primary display.  Once this is done, the laptop display is turned

The instructions for setting the primary display as the external monitor
would very from laptop to laptop.  I'm in no position to help with them.
you do get the battery saver, I suggest you try plugging it in to the
port of the laptop.  Start the laptop at that point and see if the
switches off.  If it does, you are good to go.  If it does not, you
then have to do a little fiddling and see how the external monitor can
said to be used as the single display on that laptop.
