    Hi there all.
    Today I've noticed that when I put my iPhone 4 on the right side of my Unibody MacBook, without touching any buttons, it turns of the display.
    Here's a link with the video that I've made: http://cl.ly/2c1L0e2I2o3U2I1b1x1n
    What do you think about that ?
    Test that on your macbook and tell me if the same happened.

    Most likely, you're tripping the magnetic sleep sensor. Wouldn't really have expected it because of an iPhone, but can't imagine any other possibility.

    The same thing happens on my MBP 5,5 when I put a phone in that position, I wasn't sure what it was before but the magnetic lid sensor makes a lot of sense. So thanks for clearing that up :)
