It is possible using Screen Spanning Doctor software (See VersionTracker). However it is not recommended because it can apparently cause overheating (The iBook wasn't designed to be used in that way).
You could always use both screens via the same Spanning software, then leave the iBook open.

I was trying to solve the same problem... if you use the dimmer control (F1) you can dim the laptop monitor to be off, but the secondary monitor is unaffected. Won't burn out your Ibook monitor... still can't close the lid though!
Hope this helps,

Is Screen Spanning Doctor safe for my brand new iBook (10.4)? I don't always use my extra monitor. Can Screen Spanning Doctor be uninstalled?
I've been docking and dimming, but sure would like the extra sreen-realestate.
