Indicator of iMac sleep status
Authored by: apta on May 17, '11 05:46:05PM

Another way to tell if an iMac is awake or not is by placing a hand on the exhaust vents and sensing whether warm air is coming out due to the fans. The fans always spin while awake but not when asleep.

On the white iMac models the exhaust vents are on the back near the top. Don't know about the newer iMacs but I guess they'd be in a similar place.
