Sorry for my English. When I try install or boot LM20 on notebook with closed lid and connected monitor I can't anything see on the screen - image flickers and twitches. And the reason, I believe, is this:
xrandr --listactivemonitors
Monitors: 2
0: +*DP-1 1920/518x1200/324+0+0 DP-1
1: +*DP-1 1920/518x1200/324+1920+0 DP-1
If I run:
xrandr --output DP-1-0 --off
or I open and then close lid everything is going back to normal:
Monitors: 1
0: +*DP-1 1920/518x1200/324+0+0 DP-1

DP-1 external d-sub monitor.
I tested on different notebooks (BIOS or UEFI, one or two videocards) and taked same effect.This is only in LM20, in LM19 all ok!

Your laptop monitor is set as primary. In display set to mirror.

You're wrong, it's not:
$ xrandr -q
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 3840 x 1200, maximum 16384 x 16384
eDP-1 connected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
1920x1080 60.01 + 60.01 59.97 59.96 59.93 40.00
....
HDMI-1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
DP-1 connected primary 1920x1200+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 518mm x 324mm
1920x1200 59.95*+
.....
HDMI-2 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
This is before 'xrandr --output DP-1-0 --off'
