    Quick question about screen spanning
    Is there a way to have the main desktop appear on my external monitor and span onto the PowerBook screen instead of vice versa?

    Not 100%for powerbok but on my iBook
    System Prefs>Displays>Arrrangment . Just drag the screens around in to the positions you want them. Move the white bar at the top to the screen you want to be the primary.

    If you position the little screen so its edges aren't lined up with the edges of the larger screen then expose will still work on the larger screen.

    Specs:
    Powerbook 17" 1.5GHz, 2GB, 160GB Momentus; iMac 24" 3.06GHz, 2GB; iPhone 2.5G 8GB; iPod 5G 60GB
    In the same way, you can also drag the menu bar and finder bar so it appears on the monitor of your choice.
