    - After installing/upgrading, once logged into OSX 10.10, the location services become enabled. (ALSO: This happens after each OSX 10.10 update so update 1,2,3). The Location Services becomes ENABLED AND sends your exact location when logging in.

    - Lets say you are using a external monitor (23 inch), and you DON'T want to use your macbook pro screen, there are no options to turn the macbook pro screen off, AND AS A RESULT the external monitor becomes 50% laggy, also 50% decreases your macbook pro speed, so opening a track on itunes using the external monitor means the pizza death cursor for a few seconds, lag ,etc.


    So if your using a External Monitor and only want to use the external monitor then macs performance decreases by 50-100%. Opening apps such as preview or even textedit takes 100% longer.

    Has it ever been possible to "turn off the screen" when connected to an external?

    As far as I know, if it's not in clamshell mode and the display is connected (internal cable), that display is going to turn on and cannot be shut off.

    Maybe I'm just naive but I don't recall ever being able to disable the attached display.

    You're correct. This was not a feature before.
    The OP could always do the magnet trick...:rolleyes:

    Thanks for verifying that I'm sane.

    To the OP, what exactly is wrong with clamshell mode? Any reason the laptop has to be open if you aren't using the screen anyhow?

    Clamshell mode reduces heat dissipation, because the aluminium area around the keyboard acts as a heatsink as well.

    I always use the magnet trick.

    Major Issues?

    We have very different ideas of what a major issue is.

    These are not major issues. More like, minor annoyances.

    Yes, there is an option to turn off the internal screen, when an external screen is connected.
    Just use clamshell mode.
    And, the advantage is that all the system video resources will be used with the external (so you will have better performance.)

    I'm guessing that the OP just doesn't want to use clamshell mode, or maybe doesn't have an external keyboard/mouse, etc.
