    While we continue to wait for a proper solution (which, to be a real solution, would need to do away with this screen recording hack), I have found a combination of two MacOS apps to allow for clamshell mode with the current driver: 1) Amphetamine to disable sleeping when lid is closed and 2) SwitchresX to disable the built-in display so it does not appear in the list of monitors when moving windows between tabs, moving mouse around, etc.

    It is absurd I have had to buy these two apps, but it is what it is at this point.

    After years of using other docking stations / DP adapters that do not use what can only be described as a hack -- relying on MacOS screen recording to add additional ports -- I was horrified by all the issues I now have:

    Cannot close Intel MacBook Air and use clamshell mode (I understand this is being worked on)
    Cannot play protected video
    Cannot unlock using Apple Watch
    Cannot use Night Shift

    The correct solution is to completely re-write your software to not rely on a hack. If the hardware does not allow this, then all these devices need to be scrapped.

    Please advise if development of a completely new driver is in discussion (a minimum) or active development (what I would assume is happening).
