I have a laptop docked to a docking station and it connects to two external displays. I have turned off the laptop display and am using the two external ones.

When I start a PPT presentation in presentation mode, one of the external displays disconnects and the laptop display turns on.

It stays this way even after the presentation mode is ended.

The Slidesshow monitor setting is set to Automatic, and use Presenter View is checked.
