    Hey guys,

    im new here, but i have a problem. i use my MBP w/ a external display, usb keyboard and magic mouse. I keep my MBP in clamshell mode all the time while stationed at my house. when i shut my computer down, everything is peachy, but then when i want to power up my computer, i wish there was a power button on my keyboard so i dont have to open my laptop up and press the power button, then shut it fast. any way to set a f1 or f2 key to turn on my comp in clamshell mode? or maybe make my magic mouse turn on my computer through some setting? any help would be great. thanks

    Nope. Just put your computer to sleep rather than turning it off.

    Why do you even want to turn it off? You don't need to turn macs off every night, or...even at all, really. Plus, there are maintenance scripts that are run during the night.
