Hi, I bought a used 20 inch Apple Cinema Display for my Santa Rosa MacBook Pro . I've never used one of these before so I'm kind of lost. I did test the ACD on my Windows XP partition (bootcamp) and did a remarkable job of using my ACD as the primary desktop. While this happened, my laptop screen went blank (unless I decided to clone it via the nvidia control panel). My question is that is there a way to do this on Leopard? The text is horrible blurry if I check "Mirror Displays" under System Preferences > Displays. I think the color is also a little more way off. But as soon as I use the ACD as an extended desktop, the text is crisp and so are the colors , for the most part. Now all I need is the top menu bar and the dock to be on the ACD. Also, when I did have the ACD mirroring my MacBook Pro, I couldn't shut the laptop 'cause it would go to sleep thereby making the ACD go to sleep. Is there any way to avoid this as well? Stupid question, I know. Thanks in advance for your answers. P.S. - I do have another question, and that is when I'm in Windows, none of the USB ports work at the back of the ACD. I just plugged in my mouse USB receiver and it won't move. Not to mention that the 20 inch native resolution (1680 x 1050 ) is missing from the Windows resolution settings. Is there any way I could get these/this to work, especially since I'm considering buying a aluminum keyboard which I was thinking of plugging into the back of the ACD.
