Is there a way to move all windows from the 1st monitor to the 2nd monitor while the 1st monitor is turned off? This is on gnome 2.

The only way I can think of is to turn off the 1st monitor in your display settings. Try running gnome-display-properties or nvidia-settings if you are running the nvidia drivers or aticonfig if you have ATI.
