    What is it with Apple and still not having implemented automatic recognition of external display when hooking up to the MBP. Seriously? Do we really need to close/ open the lid in order to shut off the MBP screen.
    Why does it work in Windows (via Bootcamp) and not in OS-X?
    I was hoping this would be fixed in SL but still no.

    Really annoying.

    I'm not entirely sure I am thinking of the same thing but with Tiger I could open my MBP, press the power button to turn it on then close it straight away and it would find my external monitor. With SL this won't work - the whole system just stalls on bootup. What's the best way to get this sequence working with SL?
