    New to MAC. Have attached a second monitor to my system and everything works great. I can have 2 applications open at the same time. Except when I use slideshow in iPhoto which blacks out the second monitor even though it doesn't appear to be using it for anything. I have looked for a setting that will limit iPhoto to one monitor and can't find one that does that. Any suggestions?

    It is impossible to run a full screen app on one monitor, and have the other monitor usable for other apps. Once you click out of one app and into another, the Mac (not capitalized ;)) automatically switches apps.

    Plex can be configured to blank out only one display, and I believe it can do slideshows of media pulled from iPhoto. You can't do that with iPhoto as far as I know.
