Use a MacBook with the main display off
Authored by: Lutin on Jun 12, '06 04:30:17AM
There should be no need to set the machine to Mirror Displays.
That's right. On a powerbook with a second screen plugged-in, in extended mode, I closed the lid. Then I woke the laptop via bluetooth (no USB keyboard available at the time), and it worked as described.
I put it to sleep and wake it up again, to get the built-in screen back on. Still worked, except that the windowserver crashed. As far as I know, It didn't cause any problem.
