Monitor sleep mode doesn't matter, it just has to be connected.

i.e. When you tried was the monitor connected and the laptop set to 
display on both internal and external monitors?

Does the proprietary driver / settings at least show that there are 
two monitors present?

(I would have thought nvidia / dual would be pretty important. i.e. 
Running as a live cd I would have thought both monitors would just 
come up. No?)
