    This is a problem I really want to fix, its quite annoying. I had a guy do a screen replacement for me a while back (he did a shabby job) and when I got it back, the bezel wasn't sitting correctly and ended up snapping and now when I close it, it does NOT go to sleep, very annoying.

    I had a place look at it when they were fixing something else and he said it would cost 140Euro, which seemed very expensive at the time! Can anyone please help me with this? Is there a part I can buy which regulates this sleep feature when the macbook is closed? Has it to do with the magnets? Please help :apple:

    Cheers man, yeah I have just been using the command+shift+Esc hotkey for 13 months now and I just miss the novelty of the whole close/sleep thing, seriously taken for granted!

    Did your friend ever sort this issue?

    I dont know but it had to do with the type of headphones
    yeah but bezels are cheap and easy to replace.

    i also just learned this pressing option+anykey makes a special symbol or
    option+shift+anykey so option+shift+k=
