how would you wake up a close lid mbp connected to a external monitor like a hdtv?
if you are using a bluetooth keyboard and/or mouse, clicking the mouse or a few keys on the keyboard will wake the macbook up.
Just typing on the keyboard should wake it up.
thanks that did work but I found out that it will only work if you have the power cord connected. It would not wake up if it's only on baterry.
forgot about that... when all else fails install insomniax
now my mighty mouse is acting sluggishly.
could be range, or the bigger monitor (1080p?) could make it see mto take longer to go from one side to the other.
is it more sluggish (adjust tracking speed) or is it choppy (weak bt signal)
disregard range is if is wired.
Actually, the mac always goes to sleep if the power cord is disconnected, and you are trying to use an external monitor. I guess its apple's idea of power-saving.
If you want to keep your mac from sleeping at all use insomniax, but I've had problems with it in the past.
It's a 1080 tv and I think you are correct that the distance might have something to do with it but what 's 1080 has to do with it?Thanks for your help.
a 1080p screen has more resolution than the 13" or 15" MBPs, more resolution = more pixels = more 'digital distance' for the mouse to travel.
Apple remote. When I use it on my iMac it also wakes my Dad's closed MBP lol... Point the Apple remote at it and hit any button and it should wake up
