After upgrading to Yosemite I've also been getting extremely slow response in a number of different situations such as long pauses for Spotlight to return file matches, slow start up of applications especially after waking from Display Sleep, as well as other operations. (It feels like walking in quicksand and finding you can't move like you could.) Also, ...

I am having the same issue and I believe it's a system bug (10.10.1) without any good workarounds. Even if you have no extra spaces on your secondary display, an extra space will show up on your main display on every reboot. I will summarize for you the various approaches I've tried and the results of each. Only the first one solved it totally for me, ...

Turning the brightness down as suggested above turns the monitor off on my MacBook Pro - mid 2014 model. Keeping the lid open allows better dissipation of heat and keeps the fan noise to a minimum so this is my preferred mode of working.

There's an application call Stay that does this and works very nicely.

I noticed your post. I've upgraded my main production hdd up to yosemite a little early. I ended up running mavericks from an external drive and accessing yosemite just for files as the hdd is still inside my macPro. Now I am booted back up to yosemite as it is getting updates and acting a little better (slowly). So some things are working better, but i am ...

The best connector is obviously one which matches your monitor. If you are getting a new monitor, most now use HDMI. HDMI and DVI-D are very similar, and dual adaptors are common. The main difference is lack of sound on DVI. VGA is an analog connection, and effectively obsolete, but you can get VGA adaptors for a Mac.

I could never find a way to set this with a machine preference. I ended up just creating a folder on my second monitor name "ScreenShots" and setting the default location for screenshots to that folder. They will then save to that desktop and into that folder. Change the default location to new folder on external monitor: defaults write ...

Your system supports following resolutions: You can use 4K displays and Ultra HD TVs at the following resolutions and refresh rates via the built-in HDMI port. 3840 x 2160 at 30 Hz refresh rate 4096 x 2160 at 24 Hz refresh rate (mirroring is not supported at this resolution)- MBP 2013 and up. Thus no 60Hz is possible.

What you will need is splitter so you can connect 2 displays to your Thunderbolt port so you can use the both iMac with Target Display Mode. It's the only way to use these iMacs as screens.

When the app is on the dock do left click on it and it will appear a menu. Select Options → Assign To Desktop on Display 2. Alternatively, I used Moom, that let me move a window from one monitor to another with a defined shortcut. In my case ⌥+⇥. But this is a paid software.

Mini DisplayPort and Thunderbolt are essentially the same connection, just with different hardware controlling them. Thunderbolt is essentially a combination of Mini DisplayPort and PCIe. I assume this was done for backwards compatibility with older hardware that was Mini DP (so you could use an Apple Cinema Display on a newer model MacBook Pro, for ...

Have you looked at PowerDesk for Mac? the description says it can do what you want. There's a DualHead2Go & TripleHead2Go User Guide for Mac. PowerDesk for Mac can be downloaded for 10.6 thru 10.10. See Download info.

If all you want is to have your desktop confined to your computer's screen, go to System Preferences > Displays > Arrangement, and check Mirror Displays. That'll make it so that your HDMI display only acts as a mirror of the desktop you already have, rather than an extension of it.
