Default Seperate X screens help

Hey there, I searched through the forum and didn't have much luck in finding what I need help with.

I have a 7900GT, and two monitors, one 20.1" 1680x1050, and an HDTV, 42" 1920x1080, the HDTV is mounted above the the 20.1", so I have the screens setup "attached" at the top and bottom. What I would like is the ability to disable the TV as easily as it is to change the resolution, in this box, maybe there is a way to make "off" or "NULL" a selection for the resolution.



I don't have a great understanding as to how this stuff works, so maybe what I am asking isn't exactly possible, but hopefully it is.

By the way, this is my xorg.conf, and I am running Debian, 2.6.16-2-686-smp, Nvidia drivers 8776, and I have a Core 2 Duo E6600... (oh and there is some compiz stuff in the xorg.conf, but I am running plain old xorg/metacity/gnome. )

Code:
Section "ServerLayout"
	Identifier	"Layout0"
	Screen	      0 "Screen0"

What you're requesting is currently possible only with Twinview, and only with the the 1.0-962x drivers, via nvidia-settings.

Thanks,
Lonni

Sorry for the bump...

Is there anyway I can lock my mouse to one screen, and have a hotkey that will move the mouse cursor back and forth to the other monitor?

P.S. I am now using the 97.42 drivers.
