    Default Is it possible to Close laptop and play music?

    Hello! guys the other day I saw a toshiba pc that had a cool feature. You can close your laptop and music will still go on the speakers/headphones. I wonder If the m11x or any laptop can do this or If I need a program?

    Cheers

    Yeah, just go to Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound -> Power Options and click the "Choose what closing the lid does" link at the left side. Then pick "Do nothing". Hope that helps!

    Yes, what kfruit replied with. When setting the option to 'do nothing' on lid close, you will be able to close the lid and the system will not enter sleep mode.

    Be sure to set the display to turn off after a minute or so or the screen will stay active even with the lid closed until the current timeout expires.

    One annoying thing, is the KB backlight doesn't shut off when the lid is closed

    That just disables alienfx... (As far as I know).


    Not as useful as having the ALIENWARE and KB lights turn off automatically. Front lights can still stay on.

    If I wanted a nonautomatic system, I would of stayed with my R1

    TalonH is on the money...

    FN+Prt Scrn will disable/go dark all FX Zones. This is the same as selecting 'Go Dark' from the FX Tray icon. Be sure 'Keep Status Zones on during Go Dark' is unchecked.

    If you really want to be creative, edit out the theme file .xml and tweak the individual zones.

    As for having an Advanced action set for when the lid is closed, nope - at least not with this version of AlienFX/Command Center.

    Not with this version of Command Center/AlienFX. Again, this would fall into a mod - perhaps Wattos as he has done the work on AlienFXLite.

    Another alternative would be to use a script to essentially launch the given theme and then close AlienFX. I'm sure there are ways to accomplish this - you just have to research and test... Have fun...
