MacBook Pro sleep question

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Just got a 15in MBP last night, and have a external monitor and mouse/ tablet plugged into it, as normal when you close the lid on it completely it goes to sleep. My question is though, can I still wake it up even when the top is closed completely? I didn't get around to checking last night as I was too busy installing software on to it, and didn't think that it would work either... just curious.

If you have a keyboard and mouse plugged in, it's supposed to go into clamshell mode so you can use it while it's shut.

yes, hitting a key or moving the mouse should wake it up in clamshell mode, or f7, or unplugging the mouse and replugging if all else fails. if you have another mac, you can use Apple Remote Desktop to wake sleeping computers over your lan. good luck!
