awake with lid closed
Authored by: chrismo on Jan 23, '06 09:29:40PM

There must be some way to modify the firmware so that when the lid is closed the energy saving preferences are altered, reducing cpu speed and turning off the display, instead of full blown sleep. I also believe it is possible to modify the fan setting from a file in OS 10.3 to choose at what temperature and at what speed the fans are activated. Making the fans spin up at a lower temperature could help keep it cool with the lid shut. I intend to experiment with this more next time I get my hands on an iBook/PowerBook.
