    Well I love the fact that my iBook can both mirror and extend it's desktop, but I was wondering if I could have two seperate desktops off of one iBook. Like right now I can only get the dock and toolbar in one of my displays unless I mirror, but then they are both the same desktop. I was just wondering if I could have two seperate desktops running off one iBook meaning two different toolbars and two different docks.

    nope...

    That hack allows for an extended desktop, but not two separate desktops with docks.

    Ah sorry, no you can not :eek:
    There are plenty of apps that act as seperate dock though, eg. Drag Thing if that helps.

    What the OP wants to do is make one computer into two. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    The closest thing I can think of to achieve this would be to get drag thing, or something similar. I have seen programs that create one more dock but I can't remember what they were.
