    Default Mavericks still doesnt fix issues

    Apple is so damn pig headed sometimes. They use nonstop adjectives in their presentations. It's beautiful, amazing, gorgeous, pretty, stunning, etc.
    How about FUNCTIONAL?!!
    They said that they were adding enhancements for multi monitor support. How about not requiring me to put a refrigerator magnet on my keyboard to turn off the built in display when I want to use my external displays.
    The typical apple fanboy answer is going to be, "why would anyone want to do that?"
    Is there no solution for this?

    I thought I did.
    How can I turn off the built in display without closing the lid while using external monitors? Closing the lid doesn't allow the camera to be used, and allows for much less ventilation. This is a basic function in Windows.

    You did, though it would be easy to overlook. I had to think about it for a while since I've never used a macbook. I agree you should be able to do that. If the magnet is the only way, that is a pretty clever way around it. :-)

    Can you go into Preferences, Energy Saver and set the display sleep to 1 min?
    Or just turn the brightness all the way down on the MBP display?

    I had read enough at the "pig headed" comment. Do some research online before you start kicking up dirt with such a temper tantrum. There are many ways around this, including the fact that the screen DOES sleep as it should (if nothing is preventing idle sleep).
