I am not on a My Mac at the moment, but in the Mission Control Preferences there is a setting to have the spaces work independently. Go to Preferences -> Mission Control -> Displays have separate Spaces.

These steps will potentially help isolate hardware/software issues. Since the monitor and cables appear to work with another Mac, apparently it's a local hardware or software issue. You can restart and perform a hardware test following these instructions from Apple (complete test takes a few hours, run overnight) by holding d prior to chime on restart, ...

Your computer has a "Thunderbolt 1" port. Apple states in this FAQ article on thunderbolt ports as an answer to question #25: 4K Ultra HD TVs are supported over HDMI or with Thunderbolt to high-speed HDMI adapters. Thunderbolt 2 is required to use a 4K display. All Thunderbolt 2 models support 4K displays at 30Hz in Single Stream Transport mode. ...

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.

There is no way to transmit only audio data via HDMI. The HDMI white paper (page 10) notes that the signal is sent in HDMI packets consisting of both audio and video. Despite all the pins, there are no separate audio and video signals, so there are also no HDMI A/V splitter cables. The only way to get around this is to send blank video data (e.g. a black ...

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.

ref: EveryMac *Although Apple only reports that this model can support a single external display up to 2560x1600, Intel reports that this model can simultaneously support two external displays up to 2560x1600 "daisy chained" via Thunderbolt.

You can only connect two or more displays to your mac when it is a thunderbolt display. When you have an thunderbolt display and a non-thunderbolt display, your mac will automatically start working with the thunderbolt display until you unplug it.

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 ...

Try this: System Preferences -> Displays and drag menubar to your external (attached) display. Built-in notifications will be displayed on the monitor with main menubar. In addition to this you may wish to explore Growl app (http://growl.info/), which allows you to setup notifications in more sophisticated way and configure them for several displays.

Open displays in Sys Pref. Drag JUST THE MENU BAR icon in the top of the primary display from one display to the other. Leave the displays as they are otherwise. Poof. Done.

I have done this with using a thunderbolt port to VGA and USB to VGA set up. The USB to VGA set up was achieved using a DIGITECH XC4879 USB to VGA converter. It needed drivers downloaded from the web but it works fine. The OS recognises Three Separate monitors and they can extended or mirrored. The adaptor also works fine via a powered USB hub. Mac 2.3ghz ...

There is no way of doing that. Working with the Dock When the Dock is configured to appear at the bottom of your screen, it's available on whichever screen you’re working on. Just move your pointer to the bottom of either display. When the Dock is configured for the left or right position, it appears on the leftmost or rightmost display edge. ...

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.

Using UltraMon seems to work fine for me, I've found it in a post on the Parallels Forum: I will start the VM with 3 screens, then I use a 3rd party software (UltraMon) and disable the one display so that my VM uses two screens running Windows 7 and my MacOS uses the one.

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.

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, ...

I think from looking at Apple's official list of screenshot shortcuts, the shortcut that comes closest to what you're trying to do is ⇧ + ⌘ + 4 + SPACEBAR. After pressing that combination, you need to click on the window you want a screenshot of. Since there's no other shortcut on the Apple-provided list that can capture the active screen, I believe ...

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

This model supports a simultaneous maximum resolution up to 2560x1600 on two external displays via Thunderbolt. Alternately, it can support a single display up to 2560x1600 via Thunderbolt and a single 1080p display at up to 60 Hz, 3840x2160 at 30 Hz, or 4096x2160 at 24 Hz via HDMI.

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.

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.

I would recommend the iStat Monitor to find out what is going on. In comparison the 750 vs 650: 50/45 watt power consumption and 967 vs 900 MHz clock would not explain the higher heat generation. However due to the RAM size difference it could explain that the 650 has to work harder (at max power) resulting in higher heat generation, while the 750 does ...

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 ...

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 ...

Unfortunately, adapters like that don't exist, AFAIK. That is, you can't just convert from HDMI to DisplayPort via a simple cable. The [Mini] DisplayPort to HDMI adapters aren't just cables, they contain IC's that provide an HDMI interface. I don't know of any such adapter that works in the other direction.

You can use a USB Display Adapter. One like this could work. Some display adapters only support digital formats (HDMI, DVI-D...) so if your projector only supports analog signals (i.e. VGA) then make sure the adapter you get supports it. One limitation of USB display adapters is their limited bandwidth, and therefore limited resolution. For a ...

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, ...

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.

Kernel panic (possibly device driver or hardware issue) is a tricky thing to debug. You should bring it to a Genius bar/Apple Store to have it debugged. You can see similar crash dumps in Apple Support Community but different issues/fixes.
