Doesn't work at all on 10.4 (site says only supports 10.2.6, nothing later or earlier). To uninstall, remove /Library/Bundles/MenuCracker.menu and Library/Bundles/NoSleep.menu. Useless.

Look at SleepLess 1.5. It uses kernel extension to prevent lid closed sleeping on 10.2 and 10.3 systems. No kernel patch needed.

This installs beauifuly, but then needs a patch which it can't download! A waste of time, because then getting it off your machine is a mission! Pity, I really wanted it

The developer's site has disappeared. Can't download the software to check and see if there are any docs to help with the issue. How thoughtful of this person to create software and then just disappear with no trace. One thing to learn from this, make sure you know how to UN-install something before you install it.

Patches to the kernel are not a good thing. They are cause to expect more crashes that you previously had. That's my two cents.

I don't know if it is true, but i have read stories of apple repair centres receiving macs with melted keys, fried LCDs, and other components damaged by the head created by hacked laptops running with the lid down and so not being able to lose heat through convection out of the keyboard, which is how it is mostly meant to. I would advise extreme caution when using this.

That's very unlikely, since most recent PowerBooks will quite happily run with the lid shut when an external keyboard & mouse are present, and this is an officially supported feature.

It's not true. Put your hands over the keyboard, it doesn't have much heat and it definatly doesn't 'use' the keyboard for cooling.

it works on 10.2.6 only, not 10.2.8, and no version of 10.3. I used it last year on my white iBook (700mhz g3) running 10.2.6. I didn't have any ill effects.

I've installed it onto my iBook and thought it is great. Once I forgot to shutdown this utility and my battery was drained and I had to fix it at Apple's technical center.
