    I have a Macbook running Snow Leopard 10.6.2 and an external display. I use the external display as the primary display, which works fine but i would like to be able to have the macbook become the primary display once I unplug it from the monitor. I would really appreciate any help.

    Just unplug it. I don't recall ever having an issue of using an external display and then going directly to the mbp after unplugging the display.
