    i have been testing lion all day. i like better than SL.

    most of the times i use my mbp with another screen, used both screen simultaneously. Watching movies on the external screen and browsing on the mbp screen.

    on SL when i use to close the lid the mac will go to sleep.

    now with lion, it will not go to sleep. all widows will go to the secondary display and the mbp screen will turn off.

    i like it better that way, if you want to wake the mac screen, press detect display. and all the windows that were previously in the primary display will go back there.

    Currently, the Quicktime full-screen functionality is broken when using dual screen.

    Not sure about the sleep issue though.

    Oh wow, that's a major bug! I often will full screen a movie on my secondary monitor while doing other work on the first.

    You'd think Apple would think about this sort of thing!

    Yeah, you have to manually put it to sleep now, but oh well, it's not that bad.

    You gonna have to use another app for movies.

    there is couple of things that works in different way in Lion.

    surround sound doesnt work well on VLC anymore for me. however Movist that didn't work with multichannel videos work well now with Lion.
