How does MacBook sense when lid is closed?
I have a Macbook C2D 2.16 GHz laptop. The screen was cracked and doesn't charge/run of battery, and I wanted to use this as a desktop. I removed the display and rerouted the wifi wires around the dvd drive. Everything works well, but when it turns on, it thinks that the display is open so it uses the external monitor as a second display. When I put it to sleep and wake it up, same thing. I want to know how the macbook recognizes when the display is open vs closed so I can try to make the computer think the diplay is closed all the time ie when it wakes from sleep, it thinks the display is closed and uses the external monitor as the main monitor.
Is this a good question?
