At work I have a MacBook Pro connected to a 27" Thunderbolt display. I take the MacBook home with me in the evenings.
I come into work, plug in the power and Thunderbolt cable, open up the MacBook, and hit the power button. I then close the MacBook and put it in its vertical stand. The 27" display doesnt always turn on (or maybe its just slow).
Should I be turning on the MacBook and waiting for it to boot, or for the built in display to work, before plugging in the the external display?
What is the best/proper order?
