how can i lock my external monitor output signal when connected to multiple monitors while having those monitor's power turned off? I use 3 monitors on my macbook pro retina and each time I turn one monitor off or close the lid, all my monitors automatically re-adjust and my open windows and applications move around. Helpful in some situations but not so much when you just want to save some energy while you run a quick errand, play a video on just one screen, focus attention on one area...


How can i make it so it auto adjusts only when I unplug the thunderbolt connection?

MacBook Pro with Retina display, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
