    My macbook sits as a desktop most of the time and I'd like to disconnect
    the video display while I'm sending video to an external monitor. Is
    there a way to do this? The software allows for mirroring but I'd like
    to shut down the power and the signal to the LCD on the Macbook
    completely.

    Hmm. I thought that you weren't going to post in Mac groups again?
