    Hi, I'm new to the dual monitor world and was wondering how I could play WoW on full screen on my MBP while having other apps open on the external 2nd monitor?

    Every time I play WoW the external monitor goes blank. I am able to play WoW on windowed mode though, but I don't want to play it like that. Please help! Thanks!

    I've wondered that myself, since I've played WoW with dual-display on both a MacBook Pro and a G5. I don't know of any way to make the second monitor not go black when setting the game to run in full screen, although I don't seem to notice any significant FPS drop when playing in windowed mode on either machine.

    If you're just craving the extra screen space that fullscreen provides, you could try one of many programs that hides the top Mac OS X menu bar so the WoW window can occupy that last bit of space.

    I'd give the World of Warcraft Mac Support forums a look, though, since Tigerclaw and some of the other Blizzard mac developers are pretty quick to post there.
