Top 10 Secret Features in Mac OS X Lion There's one change unmentioned I'm halfway happy about: using an external display, keyboard & mouse with my MBP unibody - on previous Os versions, closing the lid while the display was running would put the Mac to sleep until a key stroke or mouse click, now it will auto-adjust to the external display only - this part is great but when reopening the lid it will auto-adjust to both displays, for most I'm sure it's a great change, I wish there was a setting for manually turning on\off the displays. One more feature I'm not sure was available before is the option to schedule startup, wake or sleep for the computer, you can find that setting in system preferences->energy saver 7/24/11 3:38am
