Default Re: How to turn off display permanently?

Oh I see. That's odd, most laptops turn off the internal display automatically when you close the lid. I don't think the driver will validate metamodes with no active display devices. You could hack it by making the driver think an external display is connected using the ConnectedMonitor option, then configure metamodes like I described, switching to the nonexistent external display when you want the internal one to turn off.
