    I have a 21.5" iMac. I'm using a secondary monitor with a mini-display to VGA. When I open SCII and put it in full screen on the iMac, it turns the 2nd monitor black. I'm probably missing something simple, but is there a way to make the second monitor able to be used and 'unlocked' while in full screen mode inside the game?

    ---Not to play on both screens, but to be able to do other things on the computer while playing as well.

    Thanks.

    Wow! You have time to do "other things" while in the midst of playing an RTS game like Starcraft 2? I just find that rather fascinating, especially since it is all I can do to defeat a hard Zerg AI opponent. In any event, I don't have a solution to offer you beyond try playing the game in a "windowed" mode.

    Yea, I think the only solution is to go windowed mode (Command + M), and just drag the window to make it as large as possible.

    Even if you were to go full screen on one monitor, SC2 would still (in my experience) disallow the mouse from leaving that first screen, and you'd scroll the map in that direction instead of seeing your mouse actually leave the window.
