Run newer PowerBooks with the lid closed
Authored by: dfbills on Feb 21, '03 07:53:11PM

This works great. I've used my three different powerbooks in this mode daily since 1998 without screen damage. The only drawback is that the fan runs more often to keep the heat levels down.

Powerbook G3 400 (Lombard)
Powerbook G3 500 (Pismo)
Powerbook G4 500 (TiBook)
Powerbook G4 800 (DVI)

Of these, the G3 500 runs the coolest and rarely, if ever, has the fan come on. It is running headless right now playing iTunes music though my stereo.

(especially interested in the Pismo)

Did you use this magnet-trick to run the PB:s with the lid closed or are there other ways to do it?
