sleep mode is great, but...

Message #1 - Posted 2003/11/11 - Tim Hanson

1) why not include a sleep button on the dialog box when one is logged out (an alternative to the power down button)?

2) is it possible to prevent sleep when someone is logged in externally (or has mounted a folder via appletalk/chooser)?

and he likes having thought of it so well that he says again, sleep mode is great...

Try pressing the power button on your Mac. That should put the machine to sleep although you may have to set that preference first in the Energy Saver pref pane.

Log out and then use CMmd-Opt-Eject - puts it to sleep a treat!
