I use my iBook2 as my office workstation: USB Mouse, Keyboard and
external VGA monitor. Setting this up was quite easy.

In order to use the ext. VGA monitor I just need to reboot my iBook with
the VGA cable plugged in and the iBook closed (iBook monitor closed) and
no pmud running for standby reasons.

Some pics of this kind of configuration are available here:
