As gavinlufc said, sometimes it works to power off the monitor you don't want to use. But that doesn't always work because in many cases the Mac will detect the monitor as being present regardless of whether it is powered on or powered off.
Unfortunately, there is no other way to do what you desire short of unplugging, as you are already doing. This feature gets requested from time to time by others. You could file a request with Apple through the OS X feedback page.
I just put in such a request. The more they get, the more they will consider making the change.
this is really annoying since I use the second Monitor for the Parallels or VMware,
so not all the time & my Mouse or sometimes Icons jump on the other Monitor and then I have to start this Monitor in order to move the Icons (or windows) back to my main Monitor.This is too primitive for Mac OS...
Thank you BSteely. I just submitted a request. Other guys who have the same problem please log your request. It's bad that Mac doesn't support this while it's easy to do this in Windows 7 by pressing Win+P, though I like Mac very much.
I'm marking this thread as answered. Anyway, "no way" is the answer:-(
