10.4: Disable IR port on new Macs via a startup script
Authored by: proinsias on Mar 22, '07 09:10:13AM

Two questions:

First of all, I'm assuming that turning off the IR receiver would reduce the power consumption of a MacBook Pro? When I'm running on battery, I turn off everything that I can think of using LocationX, so I would like to add this to my list, but ...

When I run:
sudo /sbin/kextunload /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIRController.kext
I get:
kextunload: unload kext /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIRController.kext failed

Any ideas why?
