comment Removing, or minimizing, scratches on the top of a Magic Mouse
@gentmatt You have no choice. The alternative is to use a blow torch and try to soften the material slightly and hold it in that state for a while, so that it will settle into the scratches on its own. This requires way more expertise, is potentially risky to an average person and most importantly, you're bringing a high heat source near an electronic device and could easily fry it if you're not careful. Contrary to what you claim, sanding with finer and finer grits is the way to polish something. You can try watching videos on fine woodworking or auto detailing to verify.

comment Why is the iPhone's default landscape orientation 'upside down'?
@DisgruntledGoat While they do have very detailed best practices design wise, I don't think they advocate any particular orientation. Please see my edit

I assume you've tried the hot-corner option for putting your display to sleep?

comment What's the OS X equivalent of a BSOD?
@JavaAndCSharp A kernel panic is by no means a light thing. However, it doesn't mean the end of your mac. The article I linked above tells you step by step how to deal with and diagnose recurring kernel panics. It usually does not mean there's a problem with your mac, but it could.
