If you put the PowerBook to sleep, and then connect a display and a USB keyboard and mouse, the display will be picked up and the monitor of the powerbook is no longer used.

on 10.1.5...
Authored by: houchin on Sep 06, '02 12:31:27PM

This started working for me with 10.1.5, but now causes crashes with 10.2 when I sleep the system and undock, so I've been back to the routine of "wake, dock, detect new displays, work, undock, detect new displays, sleep."

However, I just noticed that in 10.2, if you reduce the brightness of the LCD display until the backlight turns off, you still get display on the attached CRT. In 10.1, turning off the backlight slept the VGA output as well.

So, maybe my crashes weren't crashes, but just that the backlight was off... I'll have to look into that
