Click the pad and it will wake, i just did it then on my Magic Trackpad.Has anyone found a way to fix this "feature"?
I have a mac mini in the living room, it has no keyboard...it is controlled with a PS3 controller and Magic Trackpad....wiping and tapping the pad will not wake lion. The only way I can wake it is by tapping the power button on the back...this is annoying.
As someone who has a desk in his bedroom with his Mac, and a cat that LOVES to freaking jump on it in the middle of the night (jiggling the mouse enough to wake the Mac and turn on the screen), I'm liking this new feature.I'm guessing it's a bug as it doesn't make much sense to have changed it by design. It is annoying though.
The click it uses to wake up is NOT registered.I don't like it. I don't like to click or press a button to wake my mini up of fear i might click something on whatever application / document is open. By just moving the mouse i know for sure its a "clean" wakeup.
A tiny issue I know but here again i feel they've fixed something that aint broke. I can see the use in some cases though, they should've made it optional.
The problem can/could be, that you didn't know if your Mac was asleep or just in screen-off mode but still awake, so pressing a key might or might not have sent a keystroke or mouse click to whichever window was open.The click it uses to wake up is NOT registered.
Any button press is NOT registered, it only wakes up the computer.
Should def be a choice...not the only method. But they when they changed the side switch on the iPad everyone freaked out and they added a choice.As someone who has a desk in his bedroom with his Mac, and a cat that LOVES to freaking jump on it in the middle of the night (jiggling the mouse enough to wake the Mac and turn on the screen), I'm liking this new feature.
I do hope they make it a toggleable option though. Definitely see where it's a major PITA for others!
It has been this way I believe with Snow Leopard as well, but I think in 10.6.8, it allowed the mouse to be moved, which woke the computer.the screen turns off after a while which is normal, usually moving the mouse would wake it in SL but not in lion.... is there a setting i need to change?
I, as well, like this feature. I was always brushing the mouse after putting it to sleep.I think this is a new "feature." You now need to actually click the mouse. It's a tiny change, but it now keeps the display off if it's just an accidental brush against the mouse. I personally like this, many don't.
