    There is no easy way, unless you are running Windows on the iMac, in which case it is very easy. You'll have to settle for turning the brightness all the way down

    What app are you using to play video? Some apps have an option to black out the screen not in use... for example, VLC: (see screenshot)

    I use Boxee. I don't think thath Boxee have this features. Its really strange because Boxee is a software written specifically for wathing TV shows and movies on external display..
