Run newer PowerBooks with the lid closed
Authored by: McGornigle on Feb 24, '03 10:41:41AM

I think it can't be so wrong to run the PowerBook with the lid closed, as
Apple has put this option in the PowerBook manual. In the manual that
came with my G4 12" it works like this:
You can use the PB with the lid closed, when it is connected to
keyboard, mouse, monitor and power.
1) Connect USB-keyboard and mouse to PowerBook
2) Close lid and PowerBook goes to sleep
3) Connect monitor to PB
4) Wait a few seconds and press a key on the keyboard, so the PB
wakes up
