    Mac help ?

    Just curious if there are any tutorials out there with regards to x code and how to get the apple on the lid of my power book to turn off and on in the same fashion that the LED at the front of the power book goes on and off whilst it is sleeping.

    That's a passive light. It can't be manipulated like that as far as I am aware. Don't worry about it. Everyone with a Mac loves the way the logo just shines- learn to like it.

    X Code: search Google- there are loads of articles about it. One thing is for sure- it isn't as easy as picking up Visual Basic and making pretty windows that do stuff ;-)

    I could be wrong, but I don't think that would be possible - I believe the Apple is simply a window through the lid to the screen backlight so it illuminates when the screen is on and not otherwise.

    As kingswood says, though, it's cool enough like that anyway

    Correct, turn your screen brightness up and down and notice the apple logo changes brightness with it.
