    If I'm mirroring a display on an iBook to an external monitor is it possible to put the iBook's display to sleep and keep it on the external display? Just pondering my options here.

    I don't know if you can "sleep" it, but press and hold the F1 key until the iBook screen goes black. Works for me.

    Close enough for me.

    I'd been looking at buying a HDTV with digital freeview on it, but it costs £50 more than the base model.

    And yet I have a TV tuner for my Mac, seemed a silly thing to do to buy the freeview one when I can just hook the iBook up to the external display ;)
