The unalterable behaviour fits some people. So it fits you, right?
Another satisfied customer! Now if you'll just move along, please, madam, I'll be free to attend to the next person in this queue of dissatisfied customers. One size fits all! Have a nice day …
I hate the total disrespect shown to us as Mac users by the name itself, mac, come on Apple, we know you don't care about us but at least capitalize the name, MacOS Sierra.
It's gone! I didn't know that was gone! After my MB died in 2009, which I bought in '06, I've only been using an iMac, and those don't allow external hookups, so I nvr tried using an external setup since '08 really.
That's just lousy. Waste of battery.
I forgot to mention: "with the lid opened".Works here on my MBA with Sierra. No built in display when the lid is closed.

What you're doing is called clamshell mode, which is officially supported by Apple.
I'm referring to an old option OS X used to have that would allow the user to disable the built in display, with the MacBook opened, when an external display is connected.
This is an important way to avoid the heat produced by the laptop internals to hit the built-in display when the laptop is closed and still operating.
I am pretty sure they do actually. After all, the Mac OS was called "Mac OS" for many years, then "Mac OS X", then "OS X" and now "macOS". Apart from the newest naming scheme, guess what it was called for the shortest time.I simply refuse to call it anything other than OS X, for that's what it is. This macOS nonsense is a marketing gimmick and the internal engineering staff sure don't call it macOS like that.

Correcting your post: "how good you USED TO HAVE IT".I had a MacBook for 4 years but must confess I never tried such functionality. I recall the MB white colored machine shouldn't have been used with screen down. Btw, the iBook used to only mirror the internal display to external monitor. You kids don't realize how good you have it.
Wow, who pissed on your sugar cube today? Mac OS 9 was a marvel to use, too bad you obviously haven't tried it much. And Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X had a loooot over things in common. And yes I can guess all I want, but if you don't care about it, then you shouldn't have brought it up. macOS is a marketing ploy... But OS X wasn't. Got ya...The crappy OS from before Steve 2 is a different beast. The current OS run on Macs is and never was a derivative of that. You can guess what it's internally called if you want. macOS is a marketing driven direction and got more than a few face palms when disclosed.
Indeed.I simply refuse to call it anything other than OS X, for that's what it is. This macOS nonsense is a marketing gimmick and the internal engineering staff sure don't call it macOS like that. It's crazy to give up its unique identity over some unclear connection to watches and iPhone OSs.
