Is it possible to move the "Reed Switch"?
I have a macbook unibody and recently replaced the display assembly (thank you iFixit!) and all works well, except that the computer doesn't go to sleep when i close it. I did a little snooping and checked -- the position of the magnet that controls the switch on the display is on the edge, and the magnet on the actual computer seems to be in a different position, on the right (as you open the mac) and a bit away from the edge.
Now, if I have identified the position correctly -- no guarantee -- all I need to do is move the little magnet over an inch. But I am not sure if that is in fact possible, and I haven't found a good picture anyplace of what it looks like. So if anyone can point me to a guide on the site (or another site) that will show me where it is that would be great. And if you can tell me if I am just SOL or not. It's not a big deal, I can put the computer to sleep and close the lid. But it would be nice to fix.
Anyhow, that's the deal. Any help is appreciated.
Is this a good question?
