Disable Secondary Monitor?

Is it possible to disable the secondary monitor in DisplayFusion? I'm trying it out with my big screen tv, and I've seen some multi monitor software that allows you to disable and then enable the secondary monitor. I like how DisplyFusion works so far, but with my set-up, I don't always need or want the secondary monitor active - when I'm only using one monitor, I find it irritating when the mouse moves to the other screen, and if you do a screen print, it prints both desktops.

Managing the monitor settings is something I am planning for a future version of DisplayFusion, but currently it can't do this.

Is there some way I could either be notified when this update comes out or is there an easy way to track the changes so I can figure out when this feature is added because I am dying for Windows 7 task bar functions in my 2nd task bar, but I can not live without the ability to disable the 2nd monitor.
That's the only thing that's stopping me from switching, but the moment it's added I'll be installing DisplayFusion.

Windows 7 has an easy way to disable the second (or even the primary) monitor - use [Windows key] + [P] and you get to select computer only (primary monitor) Duplicate (which I cannot seem ot get to work, but theoretically shows the same info on both monitors), Extend (normal method employed when using dual monitors) and Projector only (which disables the primary monitor and makes the secondary monitor the primary - I use this a lot when I want to watch movies on my second monitor, which is angled for better viewing from my bed).
I am I.

Thanks for the tips John, Windows 7 makes this much easier.
