Command-Option-P-R. Got it. I will try this when I get back. Hopefully disabling the hack doesn't force it into permanent mirror mode with a 800x600 resolution.:hmm:

Not exactly, drive-thru. I am saying that one day, with only the mouse and power connected, the iBook suddenly thought it had a second display. To try to make the iBook understand that there was no...

I'm sure you are aware of this, you can put external screens to the ibook in dual screen mode with a simple hack. I did this, and it works fine. Just don't confuse the Os and 0s, (letter and digit). ...
