    Hey All,

    Apple modified the power button behaviour, restoring it to 10.8 functionality (mostly) with the 10.9.2 update.

    I actually preferred the Mavericks GM behaviour of instant sleep when pressing the button. Does anyone know if there is a way to switch it back to this?

    Thanks!

    There is a Terminal command here you can use to restore the old behavior.

    Thanks, but neither option enables instant sleep on 10.9.2

    I apologize. I misread your post. I thought you wanted to get back to the 10.8 behavior.

    AppleScripts?
    Code:
    do shell script "pmset displaysleepnow"
    or
    Code:
    do shell script "pmset sleepnow"
    You can set these up as services, or run thru something like FastScripts.
    Either way, hook them up to the key combo of your choice.
