i wonder how to maintain the internet connection (adsl) when i close the lid and my ibook at sleep ?
If your iBook is put to sleep you won't be able to stay connected to the internet.
Why would you want to be connected when your computer is asleep?
i am a heavy downloader ... i want to close the lid while my it downloading ...
There's a hack somewhere out there which will let you close the lid of an iBook without it sleeping but it's not recommended since a lot of the heat generated by the hard drive, the GPU and the CPU is dissipated through the keyboard.
If an iBook is sleeping then I think it'll only supply power to the RAM so you wouldn't be able to sleep and download.
Sorry, but I think the best option is to just leave the lid open.
DAMN, i wanted to do the same thing. Can I shut off the screen and leave the computer running?
Turn the screen brightness settings down to lowest in either the System Preferences or using the keyboard shortcuts (I forget which F~ keys they are). This is pretty strongly recommended so as to conserve power and potential screen life.
Like MadJew said, dimming the screen might be your best bet.
i don't know if it applies to iBooks but I can use my PB in clamshell mode (lid closed) by attaching an external keyboard/monitor. Not really recommended though, as these are pretty hot little things.
The PowerBooks were designed with clamshelling in mind (is that even a word ) whereas the iBooks were not. The PowerBooks have different heat dissipation techniques/routes so it's much less of a problem. I would never use clamshell mode on my iBook.
thanks for all answers ... maybe i should just open up the lcd and turn down the brightness ...
Sometimes the simples solutions are the best...
If clamshelling isn't a word, it dang well should be!
got one quick question about safari ...
how to refresh all the tabs simultaneously ?
This is just disappointing! Hopefully it'll all be fixed in 10.4.3...
CONTROL-CLICK on a tab and select Reload All Tabs.
Oui! Err... Mon mal.
