    Hi!

    I use a Mac mini as my entertainment center on my living room tv.

    Also connected is a playstation, with wich I want to play online. If i want to do so, i firstly want to keep my mac from doing ANYTHING online. Not going to dropbox, not looking for updates, not downloads updates or podcast.

    Is there a switch that can easily set the MAC to offline (ethernet+wifi) mode and then back to full online functionality with one click?

    Any other ideas (not involving shutting the mac off :) )?

    Use wifi to connect to the internet and turn the wifi off when you want it to be offline. It's too clicks, but pretty simple.

    ..... or, if you're connected to ethernet, just reach around and unplug the connector!
