Hi all

I've got allot of music on my mac, and have been using it as a sort of music player in my room. However, I'd quite like to be able to close the MacBook up and still listen to music. This would be usefull since there isn't alot of space in my room!

Sorry if I posted this in the wrong section of the forum, I wasn't sure were it should go!


Thanks alot

you could also try sleepless.. you can find it on www.macupdate.com I think its $10.. insomniaX is free so it maybe the best bet if you don't want to spend any cash.

PLEASE read the warnings on these programs.. It could just be a fluke but I used insomniaX on my PB for two weeks and it fried the HDD.

I Remember on my powerbook, if you have a usb mouse and external monitor plugged in, you can click the mouse after you close the lid. It wakes up for you.

I tried insomniaX. It looks realy good, I'm a bit worried about my Mac overheating though!

I ran insomniaX, but couldn't get the screen backlight to turn back on. I tried the 'Hold Menu & Play' thing on the remote but it didn't seem to work.


Thanks again!

Or you could remove the magnet thats on the left side of the screen about half way down. I took mine out when I colour modded my apple.

Oh and it will VOID warranty. so keep it safe and well. And replace when you take your MB back to Apple(hopefully you shouldnt need to).

I used to lay a pencil sideways hear the edge of the laptop, then rest the lid on it. That way nothing ever touches the screen, and the mac never sleeps.
