    What is the difference between using crtl+shift+eject and putting it in “sleep” mode?

    Is it similar to switching off the monitor on a PC but leaving the computer still running?


  5. Ed Says:

    The difference is that “sleep” mode is like standby on Windows – the computer isn’t exactly running or shutting down – everything is frozen.
    With Ctrl+Shift+Eject, only the monitor is turned off so that your computer is running and immediately ready to use when the monitor is turned back on (by moving mouse or pressing keyboard).
