awake with lid closed
Authored by: mivok on Jan 28, '04 02:45:53PM

For some network connections - most notably ssh connections in the terminal and my jabber IM client (I don't have any other connections left open) I can close the lid for up to 10 minutes (I haven't tested exactly how long, I just open the lid and am surprised to see I can still type in my ssh connection) and still keep the connection.
I'm connected via airport extreme and through an adsl router if that would affect things - obviously the ip address would need to stay the same between the two locations of the laptop as well.
