    First macbook -- Question on Sleep Mode
    Just received my first macbook yesterday. Downloaded a few applications including the chat program Adium. Whenever the macbook goes into sleep mode I get disconnected from Adium. Although this isn't a huge deal I was just wondering if there was a way to keep the macbook from going into sleep mode or even better if there is a way to not get disconnected from Adium when the Macbook enters sleep mode.

    Caffiene works fine for me. It puts an icon in your menu bar, click on it to X it out and it doesn't let your machine go to sleep. When you see the Z's then your machine will sleep.

    FYI - When your MacBook sleeps it looses the connection to the internet.

    For the second part of your question, No, you can't keep Adium online when the macbook goes to sleep. That's the whole point of having a sleep mode, your computer is practically shut down. the only difference between the real shut down mode is that when you open the lid everything you had been doing before sleep is right in front of you.

    Caffeine runs continuously in the menu bar, but if you click on the icon (putting an x over the z's) it will keep the machine from sleeping. Clicking on the icon again will remove the x and will allow the machine to go into sleep mode.
