memory usage
Authored by: Sammi on Sep 07, '02 02:53:55AM

I have been closing the lid on my powerbook at startup when plugging into a crt monitor, but not for the sake of saving ym lcd as much as to be able to use the full video memory on the crt. Otherwise you are spreading the (limited amount of) video memory on the graphics chip over 2 screens.

If you open tthe lid of the powerbook after startup, the lcd will not initialise, and therefore not overhead you powerbook at all.
