Use a MacBook with the main display off
Authored by: jgl24 on Jun 09, '06 02:18:16PM
Why would you do this instead of dimming? Well...

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I think there is a difference between dimming the screen and having it off. I have dimmed mine all the way in a really dark room and can still see very very faintly that the screen is still on. So I think dimmed all the way is just that-- it is still on.

When I am using a secondary display for a long time, I want to make sure that I am using as little power as possible. (See pics of my carputer to see an example of a good use of closed-lid operation.)
