I have a MBP early 2011 with a thunderbolt to HDMI connector for a samsung LED monitor.  I want to use the samsung as my only monitor when I am at my desk at home.  I have an external keyboard/trackpad and would like a bigger workspace.  As we all know Lion and full screen apps take a lot of usefulness out of extra monitors, but I just want one larger external display.


The display will work as a mirror, or an additional display, however it wont work by it self with the MBP closed.  It just stays on as a secondary display.


Any and all help would be appreciated.
