So people use PC laptops as desktops all the time. Dell has docking stations where you plug your laptop in and it essentially turns into a desktop, with an external monitor, keyboard, and mouse. I want to do this with my powerbook. I don't need a docking station, but I want to use it with an external monitor, mouse, and keyboard. And preferably without having to lift the lid to turn it on, in operation, or to turn it off (although i don't mind). Do you guys do this, and how do you do it? Is it as simple as plugging in the mini dvi to dvi extension and the pbook knows to operate in desktop mode?
