    I see you can use the main display for the screensaver. But is there any way to only use the secondary display for the screensaver?

    Seems more like a Mac OS X question than a MacBook Pro question. You might get a better answer to your question in the Mac OS X forum.

    The default action of Mac OS X is to run the screen saver on all screens. You might be able to find some third party utility or hack that will let you accomplish what you are wanting.

    Why are you wanting to do this?

    Thanks, I'll ask in there.

    Mostly because I have a big screen I want to use and don't want to shorten the life on the MBP screen.

    why not just use it closed then? Or just turn down the brightness all the way?
