    Firewire Target Disk "Screensaver"


    Hey guys. So I just got a new 27" iMac to replace an old one, and I'm obviously doing a lot of iMac-to-iMac file transfers and imports, so they spend a lot of time connected via Firewire. This includes overnight. So the fact that the Firewire "Screensaver" on the old mac stays on at all times gets really annoying really fast.

    I was wondering if anybody knew of any way to disable the Firewire screen, while maintaining the connection. Not sure if it's possible, but what better place to ask?

    Thanks a lot.

    The replies you got on MacRumors seem pretty definitive. There's really nothing to add to them.
