    hi all!

    Anyone know how I can prevent my powerbook going into sleep mode when i shut the lid? I'm using it to watch movies that are on the HDD and am connecting it to my TV... much better to be able to shut the lid when I'm doing this... but can't stop it going into sleep mode when I close the lid...

    cheers for your help :)

    I think you need to use a USB keyboard to wake it up once it's gone to sleep. Could be wrong though.

    thanks, but I'm actually after a solution that prevents it going to sleep in the first place...

    Now, would that address all my video ram to the external monitor?
