Switch MacBook power on/off with its lid closed
Authored by: variante9 on Sep 10, '08 07:42:06AM

Got a mbp and an apple display at the office and take the mb home every day.

Procedure: Leaving=sleep, remove power/usb/fw/monitor cable, go home
In the morning:attach cables, press space on the external keyboard, work

I don't remember when I last shut down my mac. Restarts work without opening the lid.

temperature is fine. Rarely the fan starts (no heavy computing, though).

This is fine whilst working on local account only. I am connected to a network account, so this is not an option.
