A more convenient solution than logging into another user could be the Shades preferences pane which allows you to dim the screen to a degree where it's not noticable that it's on. Combined with muting the audio after remotely connecting this allows you to login to an already logged on user without concern to others. However the security and privcacy ...

I solved my problem so far by simply installing this app (Display Menu) from the Mac AppStore. The screen flashed and I got image.

I had the same problem. I reset my monitor to the factory setting and this solved the problem.

Yes, in the sense you can share the screen over a internet connection. There will be a noticeable small delay as information is exchanged over the internet connection. What you would normally see on the iMac is the same as seen on the Mac Book Pro. The displays would mirror each other. If you had an actually external monitor connected to the Mac Book Pro and ...

There is a tool called "Screens" which sports a curtain mode, blocking the locally attached screen from showing anything you're doing remotely. It may require specifically their software to run to access the machine remotely, but does seem to address your issue. http://edovia.com/screens/

Previous answer all about the hardware. Try SwitchResX for the software side. I've used different versions of this for years and without fail it has always fixed resolution challenges.

You will either need an Apple TV and a thunderbolt to HDMI/DVI/VGA cable OR some thunderbolt dock capable of multiple outputs. And then check out the final option at the bottom here PH19039

Depends on whether you need the MacBook to be opened or closed. If it can be open, simply dimming the screen all the way will turn off the MacBook's screen. If you'd like it to be closed, there's a free app from the Mac App Store called Caffeine that should do the job. Download Caffeine Allow it to reside in the Menu Bar (on the right side, to the left ...

It should work, depending on the model of MacBook Air an external USB drive will be able to boot the system but it will likely be slower than an internal drive on the PCI/SATA bus. You should also have a Thunderbolt or mini display port for connecting a monitor. So it should work. Whether or not it will perform acceptably is difficult to say.

One thing you can try is to hold Alt while selecting Scaled in the Display pane of the Displays view in System Preferences. On my Mac, that increases the selection of resolutions (and the effect of that is sticky; if I hold Alt and click again after reverting to Default for display, the list shrinks back to what it was initially, but clicking back and forth ...

Your Mac has DisplayPort 1.1, which does not have enough bandwidth for 3440x1440@60Hz (DisplayPort 1.2 on newer Macs can do 3840x2160@60Hz), and a passive DisplayPort to DVI adapter can only do single link DVI, which is not enough for the advertised external resolution of 2560x1600. Apple sells a Mini DisplayPort to Dual-Link DVI Adapter for $99 (it costs ...

I'm not sure this is exactly what you're looking for, they can be pretty expensive, but apps made for professional designers and photographers can do this. DisplayMate and Datacolor Spyder5Elite are two often cited products. On the free side, there's several dozen that use the iPhone camera, including LuxCamera, Luxi, and LightMeter Free, to measure ...

Install software like Reflector 2 on the Mac Pro. Then your MacBook (assuming it can airplay to other displays) will see the Reflector advertisement and push the MacBook screen to the window on the Mac Pro. Once that's set - set the Mac Pro to direct the Reflector 2 window to full screen on the projector. Worst case, you'd need software like AirParrot on ...

I have solved this problem with the help of telephone support. Initially I was disheartened after reading all that has been written in this particular article comments section, but luckily I managed to crack this. I had earlier used a samsung with the mac mini, and straight out of the box, it matched with the samsung. It appears that this leaves the mac ...

Have a MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Late 2013) and was having 300-600+% cpu usage from kernel_task. After reading some speculation online about it being a safeguard to prevent overheating, I started to wonder why my machine couldn't handle outputting to three monitors. Following the instructions here, I looked and saw none of the applications I was running ...

Somebody wrote a customdisplayprofiles command (in Python) for changing display profiles from the command line. I haven't tried it out, though.

As was noted in the comments, brightness cannot go below a setting of 0. If you use the brightness keys on your mac, you'll note that if you keep going, you hit screen off, which entirely turns off the screen backlight. From experience, I would assume this is zero. Below zero would mean your screen is actively attracting light from it's surroundings. You can ...

The MBA GPU may be limited to a single external monitor, but the USB to HDMI requires a driver installed on the MBA and that video/image is not using the GPU, it's using the CPU. So the limit is bypassed. Now it might be more complicated than this, but I think is this the basic premise. Be aware that for fast moving videos or games the USB connected display ...

Why not use one "space" and place the parallels apps on monitor 2 and mac apps on monitor 1? Spaces is like completely new environment of all monitors attached and can't be used in different way. Maybe this question is a bit old and it's available since Yosemite and El Capitan.

I don't know if you can prevent it, but I use an app called Stay by Cordless Dog ($15, free trial), which keeps windows in place between display configuration changes.

Go into the menu on your external monitor. If there's an option that allows one device to toggle the power on the other via HDMI, make sure this is deselected (honestly, I don't think this will have an effect as your laptop is doing the driving, but for the sake of troubleshooting...). I too use an MBP Retina with external monitor (via HDMI). If I shut off ...

The problem may be due to SafeSleep, which is enabled by default on Macbooks and causes the laptop to write out the RAM to disk when put to sleep. Try turning off SafeSleep and see if that helps. My 2011 Macbook Pro started hanging occasionally when closing the lid after I upgraded to 8GB RAM, and turning off SafeSleep seems to have stopped it. ...

I don't have enough points to add comments, but I just had the same issue and found the reply by Dan Grove extremely helpful. This reply is in regard with the step 2 of his proposed solution. It can be skipped by retrieving the monitor's EDID data from SwitchResX. You can download the trial version and, in the monitor tab of SwitchResX preferences you'll ...

This is what the manual says regarding displays : "If you are connecting only one display to the dock, you can do so via the following connection types: Thunderbolt, Mini Displayport, HDMI. HOWEVER, if you intend to connect two displays simultaneously, you MUST use BOTH a native Thunderbolt display and a native HDMI display. Other combinations or adapters ...

You can also just mirror the display of the MacBook screen to the external one and then turn off the brightness of the Macbook screen (so it turns fully black). Then you can keep the lid open of your MacBook AND use the TrackPad. System Preferences > Displays > Arrangement > Select "Mirror Displays".

Changing the resolution of the external monitor, in the system preferences, usually solves the problem for me. I can then switch back to the optimal one, and the image stays on. No restart is needed.

You can use an application like tmux within which you can run your first terminal session (on first display), and then open a different terminal window on the second display and use tmux attach-session to mirror the session that is already running on the first display. This should allow you to run and view commands from both the displays. Note that this ...
