Kubuntu: Laptop screen locked in HDMI-cable-connected-modus
During boot the KDE startup screen seems to lock on the laptop. Only when I plug in the HDMI cable, the laptop screen starts functioning again. But when I unplug the HDMI cable, the laptop screen turns black.

Somehow the laptop screen failed to restore itself after disconnecting the HDMI cable. Solution was to lookup the laptop screen name via:
In my case this was 'eDP1'. Then I typed in a console:
xrandr --output eDP1 --auto
and pressed Enter after having unplugged the HDMI cable, so with a black laptop screen.
