    I haven't tried it but the sensor is in the macbook too. This sensor is to stop the hard drive from spinning so it doesn't get damaged if you drop your computer.

    i just did a search on "smackbook" and you'd be amazed at the number of results that appeared.


    honestly though, i'm of the mindset that if i drop even a few hudred bucks on a sensitive piece of electronics, i'm ever so unlikely to "smack" it.

    I agree. I tried it for like, an hour, and then realized that the desktop manager was a lot more useful without the smacking.

    It's easier to just set an easy to remember key combo (I chose +option+Arrows) and you're just as well off without upsetting the cold cathode.

    Smackbook is cool for about 5 minutes. Then you realize how absolutely useless it is for switching desktops and then go back to the keyboard shortcut.
