Im not sure if this is the right subforum for my question, but its about MacBooks so I thought Id ask here first. Anyway, there are some things that a Mac laptop does differently when it is plugged in versus running on battery. Notably, when on battery power, the MacBook will not wake up for USB peripherals or for network access, and it cannot run in clamshell mode unless plugged in. I would like to have my laptop do all of those things while on battery power, so Im looking for a way to either override the limitation, or else trick the machine into thinking it is plugged in. Does anyone know if there is some way to accomplish this? Perhaps a plist, a terminal command, or a program to run? It is clearly possible to change this behavior, as Apple could easily do so. Any advice is appreciated.
