Hi guys.
I have just bought a Dell u2410 display and I wanna use it as the ONLY monitor for my MacBook Pro while still using the keyboard and touch pad on the MacBook. But how do I turn off the MacBook display? If I check "mirror display" the Dell gets all unsharp looking so doing that and turn down the brightness of the MBP doesn't seem to work.
But if the displays aren't mirrored I get the menu bar on the Dell and the dock on the MacBook.
How do I disable the MacBook Pro display? (I use minDisplay to DVI)

Macbook Pro i7 15", Mac OS X (10.6.5), 8gb Ram, anti-glare screen, Dell u2410, iPhone4, Airport Extreme, Airport Express

Maybe this will help +Use a MacBook with the main display off+:
