    ok first off i hope this section will do because i really cant think of any specific forum to put this in.

    Alright my issue is i have a late 08 2.53 umbp and i have it connected to an acer x223w monitor and i use both screens at all times but whenever i game it cuts out the mbp screen and it only displays the external monitor but i would like to be able to view all my messengers/widgets and whatever else i have on my mbp screen while im gaming.

    if anyone knows of a fix for this it would be greatly appreciated

    if you do full screen on the external monitor it will exclude your MBP monitor. It happens to me too unless if you play on "Windowed mode"
