    I've had my 2006 MBP since June 2007 and could never get it to work in clamshell mode - lid shut but display on my HDTV. Then the other day, I cut it on while the lid was closed (done this before) and it WORKS !!
    10.6.2 or what?
    I tried all the procedures before but it would never work. Now it does.
    Go figure.
    Anyway, now I finally don't have 2 screens to look at.

    Any comments?

    Congratulations - You popped your clamshell cherry!

    It always worked for me - prior 10.6.2...even in Leopard.

    You could've always turned your brightness down on the laptop...and used the screen as your main screen...

    It's worked for me as long as I can remember... My old G4 PowerBook did it. Strange.

    Using my Monoprice HDMI and VGA adaptor on my 15" June 09 MBP I have yet to accomplish clamshell. I have tried every single possible procedure. But I'm still on 10.5.8 so we'll see when I upgrade during Christmas :rolleyes:.
