This is yet another post on the problem of keeping a Mac laptop awake with the screen closed. My Setup: - MacBook running Tiger - iPod Touch - Airport Express - Stereo My Situation: I want to be able to wake the computer in clamshell mode with my Apple Remote. Once there, I'll use a program called Telekinesis to invoke a pre-defined keyboard shortcut with my Apple Remote to run another program called InsomniaX, which keeps your computer from sleeping. This'll allow me to control my computer from across the room with Jaadu VNC on my iPod Touch and stream music to my stereo, controlling it via my iPod Touch. My Problem: The computer won't stay 'awake' long enough to run InsomniaX. That is, I hit the button on my Apple Remote and - for the second it's awake - it's like it can't load the Apple Remote remapping program long enough to invoke InsomniaX. What I need to figure out is how to get my MacBook to stay awake for like five seconds, after I wake it with the Apple Remote when the display is closed. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
