    yeah so i have a dell mini 9 (hackintoshed 10.5.6 thats why its in this section) and i just got a 22" Full HD Dell sx2210 Monitor. And i gotta say i freaking love it.

    After a long time of fine tuning i finally got the monitor to show up as the correct resolution and be primary and have all the correct window sizes etc.


    However one little setback im having is that i am not able to close the lid of my netbook without everything going to sleep. There is no option to turn this off in the settings obviously and what ive searched for has said that if i close the lid then press any button on my bluetooth keyboard that it would wake it up but that doesnt work (i have the apple wireless mighty mouse and wireless keyboard).

    So is there anyway like any kind of script or app that could always keep this awake or ignore the lid? Thanks.
