    I feel so dumb asking this. I know to press the Windows + p to select mirror display. But the LCD projector is at 1024x768 and I can only have the LCD or SP2 rez set (one or the other, not both independent).

    Is there a way to have the SP2 remain at its native and set the LCD projector to its native?

    Only if you extend the displays rather then mirroring the display...

    Thanks. I thought I was doing something wrong.

    Too bad though, because using the SP2 as a device to connect to more conventional display projectors for presentations doesn't seem to be very useful in extending. I love the way the new Office allows the presenter's display (on SP2) to show current slide+notes+next slide while the projector is full screen of the current slide.

    Presenter View only works on extended displays so you're in luck to use that feature....
