comment Ways to retain old App version
I have never seen this on a Mac, and I can't find any documentation references to it or options in iTunes preferences related to retaining old apps. Do you have any references or details on this?

comment How can I sleep the display from Terminal?
Why not simply call: /Applications/Sleep\ Display.app/Contents/MacOS/sleepdisplay Seems like an unnecessary extra step to copy it to /usr/bin or any other location.

comment One Apple ID or Two?
@rwr - from the same kb you referenced: "To do so, you will need to Turn on Home Sharing on each computer using the same Apple ID." What you're suggesting is essentially the same as my option 2. The wife still needs the husband's iTunes account credentials and the wife must authorize her iTunes library to use the husband's media. I did not suggest signing into each other's computers (except in solution 1). Anytime you use any account's media in an iTunes installation, that account must be authorized using the "Authorize this computer..." option in the "Store" menu in iTunes.

comment Can an iPhone be used without iTunes?
Not in any supported way. There are some third party tools that can move files to and from an iPhone/iPod/iPad, but I haven't used them.

This is the answer. It works instantly and incudes a true sleep state.

You will need to sign out of the first account before you can authorize the second (sign out is one of the options in the Store menu).
