Location of Hall Effect [Lid] Sensor
I have a late 2010 MacBook Air that has suddenly started sleeping every few seconds. I suspect a problem with the Hall Effect sensor falsely indicating the lid is closed. I could not find much information on the location. With some experimentation, it appears this is on the left side of the laptop, where the I/O board is located. Is the Hall Effect sensor part of the I/O board? In other words, is replacing the I/O board a likely solution?
Is this a good question?
