AbstractA first application running on a portable computer is accessible even when a cover of the portable computer is closed. This is done by providing a spontaneous use display on the cover of the portable computer. The spontaneous use display is visible to a user even when the portable computer is closed. A first subset of pixels within the primary display for the portable computer is mapped to the spontaneous use display. For example, the first subset of pixels within the primary display are located in a first rectangular region of the primary display.
