    Any disks or devices connected to the display must be unmounted or removed safely. However the display itself can just be unplugged. The Mac will take a few seconds to reconfigure its display (and you will see a blue screen while this happens) and then you will be all ready to go.

  • If you have any drives that are connected to the display then you need to dismount them; if you do not simply unplug and walk away.

  • Provided you don't have things like mounted drives connected through the display to the macbook, you don't need to do anything but pull the cords out.

  • To safely disconnect the screen you just unplug the cables. The screen on the laptop will then go blue as it changes modes. The same as when you plug the screen in.

  • You can just disconnect the adapter plug. The Macbook should recognize that and readjust your display preferences.

  • disconnect the drives or any other USB devices if present and then unplug the display port but be careful you can damage it. then the CPU will reconfigure the display to run on the macbook or other displays
