    Hi.

    I bought my first mac a two days ago. I use him with two lcds (a 22" LG and a TV 40" for movies). When I don't want watch movies, I turn off my tv. But the mouse still go to the screen.

    Someone knows a free app to block the mouse in the bounds of my 22" display?

    In windows have some free softwares that do this... But in Mac I don't know.

    I saw a SwitchResX shareware, but I don't want pay 20USD to do that.

    Sorry about my english.

    Mateus.

    I think there's something in AutoHotKey to do it, and MouseTrap. And probably others.

    I don't think there's anything for Mac. Pity. A work-around, once you've turned off other monitors (or if you just ignore them) is to turn on Mirror Displays instead of using a virtual desktop. Not helpful if you use a screen to run streaming stuff though.

    And BTW, I have SwitchRes and it doesn't do this as far as I can tell.

    Hi.

    The application that I use to do this in Windows is:

    DualDisplayMouseManager
    Available on SourceForge (http://sourceforge.net/projects/ddmm/)



    Thanks for the answer.

    And about SwitchRes: I don't know if this app can do that. But, from what I saw in another forums, it can disable the second display (don't know if is really possible).

    Mateus.
