10.5: Sleep all displays via keyboard shortcut
Authored by: jochen Küpper on Apr 11, '08 01:50:48PM

Nice hint.

What I am really looking for, though, is a way to put the internal display of my MacBook to sleep (or actually "inactive"?) when an external monitor is attached. This doesn't seem to be possible by simple means, is it?

I don't think it is with an opened lid, but I remember having read a techNote @ Apple.com. They suggested to use an external keyboard (of course with an external display as well) - then close the lid and wake up the laptop by pressing the external keyboard (with the lid still closed).
