+1The logo is lit up because it's a hole in the back of the display.
If the computer is asleep then the display is off = no lit logo.
+1. Not to mention you're wasting battery. The only reason I can think of for wanting to do this is to show off to people around you that you've got a MBP. Big whoop, the reality is nobody gives a crap.Same reason you don't leave your lights on when you leave your car. It's stupid and pointless.
not any more that using caffein and keeping the lid open, but you might be on to something with the hardwareFor this to work you'd need to have the screen remain powered and lit at all times. I think there is a hardware switch with magnets that prevents this working when you close the lid.
That and the fact that the display backlight is a huge battery drainer, you'd seriously cripple your battery life if it stayed on while the computer sleeps.
it's his computer and it's what he wants, how is that even relevant? for a company whose logo is to "think different", its users sure seem to freak the **** out whenever somebody does...Ummm....why?
who cares if he wants to leave the screen on. It's his computer. I wouldn't do it myself but good on anyone who does
I had a problem a couple years ago where my MBP would not go to sleep when I closed the lid. This lead to my MBP getting to crazy temperatures because the fans would not do anything when the lid was closed. I don't know if Caffeine keeps all other hardware on or what?
Nowhere did I suggest that the OP should not go ahead and do what he wants. I was giving advice based on my experience with similar situations. If Caffeine allows the fans to do what they are supposed to when temperatures get high (due to a screen being on continuously), then the OP will not have problems like I did.who cares if he wants to leave the screen on.

One comes free with your Mac purchase. Just stick one of those white apple stickers you get when you buy a Mac, over the logo on the case. Because it's so white, it'll look like it's glowing.Pink∆Floyd;13872852 said:I want the apple logo to stay on when the lid is closed, is there an app that'll do that?
