    hi,

    it is really strange that a MBP will wake up by me sneezing beside it (i am sure it was a good sneez :D, teleports you to comfort!) unless the sneeze air was strong enough to push some keyboard buttons, which i highly doubt.

    Anyway, my question is, does the MBP has any motion or shock sensors that can make it behave in a certain way when subjected to shaking, knocks, sneezing, whatever?

    if any, i wonder how long my MBP will last;)

    The touch pad is very very sensitive so if any moisture from you comes in contact with it then it will assume it is a finger.

    Your MBP is so fond of you, it even wakes up from sleep, afraid, that you might have a cold! Has it identified the bacteria?:)

    If you want to test the theory then drool on your touch pad ever so lightly and then drag away with your other finger.

    oh noes its the two handed zoom thingy

    The touch pad does not wake the mac from sleep no matter what you do with it. I mean, clicking, touching or clicking on the bar.

    some theories here may be right about this MBP. It actually wont go to bed by itself. I have to take it to bed and tell her a story before her eyes close.

    Anyway, i havent sneezed since the last time it woke for sleep. I have been trying to make sneeze-like stuff but it wont wake up. I think this MBP is smart enough to know that i am just pretending.

    i will report any progress. :D

    Good to know you have a sense of humor. I doubt that anything is seriously wrong with it.


    I am looking forward to sneezing next to my MacBook. I'll let you know what happens.

    i think the MBP have some sensors. once i have seen my friend tabbing his MBP on the side and something changes in the screen. So i though these sensors can detect relatively strong even and act in a certain way. The macbooks dont have them of what i heared.

    When booted into windows, and then closed to sleep, any bump of the extenal mouse will wake my SR-MBP.

    Thats a software specifically intended to change screens when tapped on the side of the lid. The software uses SMS (Sudden Motion Sensor) in the MBP to work.

    I doubt the sneezing can trigger the SMS.
