MacBook Pro :: Wehere Is The Closed Sleep Sensor On Pre-unibody Mbp?

Apr 7, 2010

I just replaced the bezel on my girl's MBP, pre-unibody, A1260 LED backlit display, and it no longer senses that the lid is closed and goes to sleep. Does anyone know where this sensor is?

MacBook :: Does Unibody Heat Up With Lid Closed?

Feb 11, 2009

I wanted to use a MB in desktop mode, with a wireless mouse, keyboard, and external monitor. With the lid closed, and the external monitor as the only screen (main screen), will the MB heat up? I know it might have been an issue in early Leopard stages, but there were glitches where doing this desktop mode will cause the notebook screen to go dark and you have to reboot if you want to use the notebook's screen instead or with the desktop screen. Does this happen with the MBs now?

MacBook Pro :: Unibody MBP - Wireless Receptioin When Lid Is Closed?

Nov 10, 2008

I use my MBP a lot in clamshell mode (hooked up to external ACD along with external keyboard and mouse) but I noticed the wi-fi reception is absolutely terrible when the lid is closed ...

Anyone have any idea why this is the case? (I assume the antenna not being as exposed as it would be when the lid is open)Or can this be solved with a software fix?

MacBook :: Unibody Doesn't Stay Closed On It's Side?

Aug 6, 2009

So I got my situation with the faulty hinge worked out. This is how I did it.

Video demo of the problem: [URL]

I dropped my Unibody Macbook off at the authorized repair shop (no Apple stores around Canada). They felt that the issue should be fixed but they needed apples go ahead, so they phoned Apple about it and they denied the claim. Next, the head technician at the shop didn't agree with their verdict so he sent an email to Apple with a video of the problem attached. They replied with saying that it was normal and they would offer me a sleeve for free. I wanted it fixed so I took it a step further. I called 1-800-my-apple and spoke with their tech support. She felt it should be fixed to so she let me speak with her supervisor. He also felt that it wasn't within normal spec, so he spoke with his manager (Highest level of tech support). The manager said no, all they could do for me is offer a free sleeve for it. The supervisor eventually transferred me to customer relations, where I spoke to gentlemen. I explained the problem to him and then he asked for the number of the repair shop. He spoke with the Manager of the shop and the repair was authorized.

2008 Unibody MacBook Pro Shuts Down When Lid Closed While On Battery

Jun 12, 2012

I did some google searches, but could not find anything that was exactly my issue. I have a 2008 MBP unibody. If the MBP is on battery only and I close the lid, the notebook shuts down completely. This is even when the battery is fully charged. However if while plugged in and I do the same, the computer "sleeps" as advertised. I have reset both the SMC and PRAM to no avail. The main thing that bothers me is it seems like when this happens on battery, its almost as if the computer is getting a hard shut down. The machine acts as if the battery was pulled while the lid was closed and this is obviously not good for the hardware or sofware.

MacBook :: OS X Mavericks (10.9.1) Sleep Sensor Isn't Working Properly

Sep 4, 2014

Just this morning, I opened my MacBook which had been sleeping overnight. for some strange reason, even when the screen was up, the light at the button was still glowing (indicating it was asleep). I tried forcing it to shutdown. When I turned it on again, it went to sleep mode right when the desktop was about to load. I tried booting from Windows 7 but sure enough, when I reached the login screen, the computer went to sleep. I concluded that it was definitely a sleep sensor problem.

MacBook Pro :: Wakes From Sleep With Lid Closed

Jun 6, 2008

When I go to bed, I like to just put my macbook pro to sleep by closing the lid. But almost 100% of the time it wakes itself. It gets really hot when this happens so I've been turning it off most of the time instead, but I'd really like to get this resolved. I have an external monitor plugged into it so I know its awake as the screen shifts over to the external monitor. When no monitor is plugged into it, I do occasionally hear the hard drive spin up. I have tried unplugging everything except for the power cable to see if that might help, but the result is the same. I have a 1st generation 15" Macbook Pro running OS X 10.5.3.

MacBook Pro :: 15" I5 Won't Sleep When Closed

Jun 27, 2010

I picked up a new 15" i5 MBP last week. 2 days later, I got 2 kernel panics and some various beeps at boot up. Took it back to the store and got a replacement yesterday.

When I close the lid, the screen shuts off and it goes to sleep for maybe a few seconds, then suddenly, the screen will come back on (apple logo on the back will illuminate again). When i open the screen just a crack, i can see it is indeed not asleep and the desktop is displayed on the screen.

MacBook Pro :: Awaking From Sleep When Closed

May 3, 2012

Looking through some previous threads, I couldn't seem to find a set of circumstances that exactly mirrored what I'm encountering. I have reset the SMC and disabled the "awake with lid opening" function in terminal to no avail. Hoping to find any insight. So this is the typical path leading up to the symptom. 

End of the day. Shut down all of my programs save for Finder. Eject all drives. Unplug the computer and put it to sleep. (The symptom occurs whether I put the system to sleep through the OS or simply close the lid.) 

I put the computer in my briefcase and drive home. Occasionally, I'll open up my briefcase to find the computer is incredibly hot and running while closed and enclosed in said briefcase. It's been a minor annoyance up to this point, but yesterday I found it literally hot to the touch and with a completely discharged battery when I went to grab it yesterday.

MacBook Pro :: It Will Not Sleep When Lid Is Closed After Servicing

May 18, 2012

I have just sent my MacBook Pro for servicing because my hard disk was corrupted by an anti-virus file (the irony...). I just got it back today and I found out that when I closed the lid, it just would not sleep. I did not have this problem previously. I came to the community to see of there was a solution, I did find a solution, by resetting the System Management Controller (SMC) but the problem still occurs. Any solutions? I'm unsure wether I did do the steps wrongly. I carefully followed all the steps except for one which I quote "If your Mac appears to be running normally but isn't responding, force the computer to shut down by pressing the and holding the power button for 10 seconds." Under (Before Resetting the SMC).

OS X V10.7 Lion :: MacBook Pro Won't Go To Sleep When Lid Closed

May 27, 2012

My macbook pro (early 2011) won't go to sleep when I close the lid ever since I upgraded to Lion (10.7.4) from Snow Leopard (10.6.8). The computer will still sleep when I click on "sleep" from the Apple menu. The computer just won't automatically sleep when I close the lid.

I tried a number of things:
1. enabling/disabling internet sharing (don't have it enabled in the first place)
2. uninstalling Little Snitch
3. Delete printer queues. Also tired deleting all printers & resetting printing system.
4. SMC reset
5. Delete: Macintosh HD > Library > Preferences > System Configuration.
Nothing works.

PowerPC :: Where Is The G4 Ibook/powerbook Sleep Sensor?

Oct 12, 2007

I was wondering how/where the sensor is/works to tell the computer to go to sleep when the lid is closed. I am doing some mods (discussed in the marketplace forum) and would like to try to keep that sensor intact if at all possible, but i realized I have no idea where it is located or how it senses that the lid is closed on these.

I searched the forum a bit and found nothing, and can't find anything in google other then sleeping problems... unless I just am horrible at googlin.

MacBook Pro :: Closed Laptop Lid - Sleep Light Not Blinking

Jan 13, 2011

I have a macbook pro 13" and I'm running on Snow Leopard Mac OS X 10.6.6. What happened is that I close the laptop while it was turned on. After a while I opened it and the screen wouldn't turn on. Other thing I noticed was that the sleep light was also turned off, instead of blinking.

MacBook Pro :: Its Not Waking Up From Closed Clam-shell Sleep?

Feb 2, 2012

I've been having problems with my mid 2009 2.53GHz MacBook Pro 15" not waking up from sleep after I open the clamshell (screen) back up.  When I open the screen after letting it sit for a while, I can hear the HDD spinning up and the status light on the bottom of the MacBook turns off (like it normally does when the clamshell is opened), but the screen is black and there is absolutely no response in any key combinations or trackpad taps.  I've been having this problem for about a month now and its getting pretty annoying.  I've tried a total wipe of the disk and a fresh Lion install with a full TimeMachine restore, but I'm having absolutely no luck.  The only thing that can bring the MBP back to life is a hard restart.  Sometimes when I hard restart it, it comes back to life right where I let off (basically like when the battery loses all its juice and restores everything thats open), but most of the time, it starts up like a normal boot with no restore.

MacBook Pro :: Re-awakens After Sleep With Lid Closed After Mavericks Update

Jun 1, 2014

My MBP seems to want to re-awaken itself after I make it go to sleep by closing the lid!  

This has started since the last couple of updates. Weirdest thing - it would go to sleep after I close it, and then after a while it would try to re-awaken with the lid shut, and it keeps doing it over and over again.  

I noticed that the machine was hot, one day when I came home, and then I realized that it was hot because it keeps wanting to come awake after I closed the lid, and noticed it the last couple times I went to bed myself!

MacBook Pro :: Unibody Won't Sleep At All?

Mar 5, 2010

My MacBook Pro started being weird yesterday. First of all the space bar stopped working - it wouldn't respond at all, or it would act like it was being held down, even though it wasn't.

Now it won't sleep - at all. If I close the lid, the light stays solid, dims once, then comes back solid, and the computer turns back on (the Apple logo lights back up etc). If I choose Sleep from the Apple menu with the screen open - the same thing happens, it sleeps for a second, then wakes back up.

I've reset the SMU and PRAM. I can't think of anything else to do.

This computer is currently on eBay and someone has bid �1,400 on it, I don't want to send it away knowing it has a problem.

Just FYI its a 2009 MacBook Pro 17" with built-in battery.

MacBook :: Mini Display Port - Vga Only Works With Lid Closed Then Computer Goes To Sleep?

Mar 12, 2012

I have a 2009 unibody macbook pro. I have 42 in lcd tv. I have a minidisplay to vga adapter and a vga cable. When I try to connect the monitor to the mbp when the lid is open nothing is detected. I do not get any options to change to mirror mode or am able to change any settings regarding the monitor. I can change the resolution of the built in display only. Now for the twist. If I connect everything, do a restart and close the lid, as the computer boots up the external monitor works. Its the grey boot screen with the apple logo. But as soon as the computer begins to load the desktop, the monitor losses the signal. At first I thought it was going into sleep mode, so I hooked up a usb mouse to keep the computer awake. I tried the process again, and as soon as it goes to the desktop it losses the signal. So I don't think it is sleep mode.  I downloaded the minidisplay prot firmware update, but because the screen is not detected when the lid is open I cant run it. When the lid is closed the computer either goes to sleep or doesn't send the desktop signal and I still cant run it. Nothing happens if I change between the video cards (9400 and 9600gm). Is it a resolution issue? Do the vga cables have a max resolution that is lower than 1900 x 1200?

Nov 24, 2009

I'm in a bit of a pickle.. I just tried to go and use my computer. I wake it and once my desktop pops up , I notice a strange black flash, now the screen is dark and the only sign of life is the sleep indicator light which is staying lit.

Nothing is responding

I tried holding down the power button, but for some reason I can't force it off, does anyone have any idea as to what else I could do to get it turned off?

MacBook Pro :: Screen Washed Out Of Unibody When System Put Into And Woken From Sleep

Jan 2, 2009

if anyone else is having problems with their unibody Macbook pro screen getting washed out after a while - especially if the computer has been put into and woken from sleep. I run a 24 inch dell monitor along side my MBP in dual monitor mode, the MBP the slave monitor, with the Dell the main monitor. After a while of use, approx 2 hours, the macbook pro screen fades out/appears washed out. It seems to settle after either a restart or dimming the MBP screen to black for a few minutes. My MBP is not on a cooling stand but I'm going to get one Is this a heat thing, a firmware thing or a defective hardware? I'm running 10.5.6 and have updated the firmware/efi as per apple updates.

MacBook Pro :: Unibody - Dell 2408WFP Waking From Sleep And Washed Out Screen

Apr 6, 2009

I bought a new unibody Macbook pro in December and have had it linked to a Dell 2408WFP for 4 months now (dell monitor as primary monitor, macbook as slave via apple mini displayport to DVI adapter) and I am also using the dell USB ports to hook up my apple wired keyboard and logitech revolution MX mouse. Problems occurring ever since the beginning include: Occasionally the computer refuses to wake up either screen. It may flash blue and look like its going to come out of sleep (or monitor shut off) with no problems but then hangs. This is intermittent and I cant seem to trouble shoot what causes it. On top of that, more frequently, the Macbook screen looks washed out (loss of colour depth). It doesnt flash and there are no blank/white areas of screen, just very poor colour depth. This can occur even coming out of screen saver mode. It seems to correct itself with time or disconnecting the dell monitor. Main programs I always leave open are Firefox +/- Transmission. Seems to happen regardless of programs being open or not. Have updated everything that Software Update can find to update. Anyone else having these problems or have any ideas how to fix?

MacBook Pro :: Use Computer In Closed Clam-shell (display Closed) Mode With An External Display?

Jun 4, 2012

I have an 13" MBP that I ordered new in April, 2012. It is running Lion. I have an external monitor that is capable of 1440x900 resolution. I have an external keyboard and trackpad hooked up, and I like to close my MBP up and stick it in a BookArc. I want to be able to have the internal display disabled and to have the MBP only allow me to put windows on the external display, so long as the lid is closed. I also want to be sure that I am taking advantage of the resolutions available on my external monitor, which are higher than those supported by the internal display (specifically 1440x900). 

This doesn't seem to work because I either have to allow the MBP to continue to draw my desktop across both screens (internal and external), OR use the "mirror displays" mode, which restricts my resolution of my external monitor. This means I either forgoe the additional resolution benefits of my external monitor, or I end up with windows that fall off-the-cliff, so to speak, because they are drawn in the portion of the desktop that would be shown on my internal display (which is closed). 

I've read the community support pages on using the MBP with an external monitor, most relevantly, this page. It simply recommends using the "mirror displays" option. However, this option, as I mentioned above, doesn't allow me to make use of the additional resolution, and my external display looks bad. how to keep the 13" MBP in closed clamshell position, with the internal display disabled, and use my external monitor at resolutions higher than those allowed by the 13" MBP but which are available to my external monitor when not in "mirror displays" mode?
