Use a MacBook with the main display off
Authored by: mayo2ca on Jun 10, '06 07:34:59PM

Turning down the brightness actually doesn't power off the monitor, and it still puts out some heat. I wouldn't recommend doing this with the lid almost closed (ie, down but not locked in). Also, if you look close enough even with the brightness at 0%, you can, barely mind you, still see the stuff on the screen.

The difference is exactly that .. turned off monitor versus minimal brightness.
