on a macbook air 4,2 i could not get the suggested configuration for slimlock on lid close to work:

Q: How do you keep the screen blanked when an external mouse is plugged in? Screen will blank when lid is closed, but if you move the mouse it will light up again and you'll see the light coming through the cracks. --[[User:VitaminJ|VitaminJ]] 05:32, 18 February 2011 (EST)
