How to disable waking-up the MacBook when opening the lid
For some this is a big problem when running on a bus or traveling, the lid ever so slightly opens and it turns on.
On your arrival you’ll find it overheated in your bag, without juice left for this terribly important presentation (and no power outlet in sight) and in the worst case with harddisk heads that have gotten to know the surface of the disks themselves – all data lost (believe me if I tell you that I had this happen twice to me)…
This video shows in less than one minute how to avoid your MacBook waking up when the lid is opened.
This is the first video tutorial in our series “Hacks 4 Noobs” which will visually walk you through hacks and small modifications that improve the usability of your tech gear.
