How to make a headless older PowerBook work
Authored by: tooki on Nov 18, '05 01:25:11PM

This persistent myth has not been true since the Wallstreet series, which did rely on the lid being open for cooling -- so Apple programmed that model to not operate with the lid closed. All PowerBook models introduced after 1998 (which happens to be all models with USB ports) do NOT need the keyboard area for cooling, and will run fine with the screen shut.

not true...I have a TiBook I ran with the lid closed for months while using Remote Desktop...i've lost functionality in about half of the keyboard from overheating
