Default no bubbles or anything in secondary?

put my coopers lager in the secondary yesterday and looked @ it today, i know its just clearing but there are no bubbles or anything looks flat to me, i guess it is really, with no carbonation....

That's exactly what you should see ... nothing.

as always, David's right.

Secondary is not actually for fermentation (despite the name). its actually for clearing the beer.
it might burp a little CO2, it might not.

really you wanna make sure primary was complete by using your hydrometer, then 2 weeks or so in secondary to help the yeast fall out of suspension, as well as clean up any off flavors like diacetyl.
