Is there an easy way? Without using Terminal?
No. Apple did not make it an adjustable feature. Changing the NVRAM from Terminal would be the only way.
You mean for the screen to not turn on at all?
In the Security & Privacy preferences pane, you can have it auto-lock and require login when waking from sleep. Opening the lid is the same thing as waking from sleep, so opening the lid would require login, too. But the display comes on anyway, even though it just goes to the login screen.
Here you go:
Cool. Sometimes "the easy way" is to use Terminal.
just curious, as to why its an issue it turns on when you open it? It seems like an obvious adjustment apple made if you open the screen lid it'd make sense you'd want to use the system.
Or maybe you just want to clean the screen or keyboard? Or your kid opened the lid?
I dunno -- I'm not the OP -- but the fact that several of us are asking illustrates why "What do you want to do?" is always a relevant question.
I used the terminal command to disable boot on power/open lid and, for the first time, had a problem with the MacBook waking up from sleep. I had to hold down the power button to get it to do anything. After it rebooted, I used terminal to set the behavior back to default and have not had an issue with waking. Interesting......
Although I rarely did open the lid of my previous MBP without intent to turn it on, I would sometimes to clean it. I'd specifically want it off. But you can always just shut it down and then clean it. So not a big deal to me, but it's nice to have options.
Do you mean TouchID?
No, I mean the power button. The Touch ID sensor is integrated into the power button.
hey guys - that link seems to handle booting up on lid open.
But what's the terminal command to stop waking from sleep on lid open?
My lid doesn't close properly, so I can't get it to stay asleep ;-)
This is actually good to know. I ran the command on the wife’s MBP and she reported that it wasn’t working. Guessing it only happens on boot, which IMO is a good thing. When you have an emergency spill you’re supposed to power off immediately, so this prevents that whole still having the convenience of turning on automatically from sleep. Sorry I can’t help you otherwise.
sudo nvram AutoBoot=%00
works for me, I know that's what was in the previous link though :/ here's some other threads that are relevant as well:
