Hi Philip, There probably is a way to accomplish this, but I'm just unclear as to how to go about it at the moment. I've seen two very good suggestions already like switching from the display to the external video port of the laptop if it has one, and I just looked at the Windows 7 projector settings as was recommended here and it seems there is a way to turn the display off temporarily. At least under Windows 7. Not sure about XP though. So perhaps there is some obscure method for disabling the display in the Windows API after all. That would be much preferable over messing with the display at the hardware/driver level.
