awake with lid closed
Authored by: keppie on Jan 29, '04 12:52:21PM

Yeah, I dunno about this, Apple's gone back and forth so much it seemed to be random whether a particular model since the wall streets would work with the lid closed. I actually really wanted this feature to 2 clients I was buying systems for a while back, so I emailed a contact in the NE High-Ed sales at apple. He looked into it and told be that the 500MHz Dual USB 12" iBooks did support lid-closed operation... That worked fine through OS 9.1, but in 9.2 and all versions of 10, it does not work. I can't really belieive that the OS makes the hardware run hotter, so either they had an incidence of these being damaged by being used in a way that was originally supported and so quietly disabled it future updates, or they just decided to be consistent even though it did no harm... any body has more info let me know, I'm about to try that NoSleep thing... hadn't heard of that before.
