comment Use caffeinate to prevent sleep on lid close on battery
I fear there is no native alternative, as a MacBook is supposed to go to sleep when you close it. :-/

comment “terminal-notifier.app is not open anymore”
This does not work for me, too, and I'm not even getting an error message. But: using the switch -activate com.apple.Terminal works fine.

comment Found a lost locked iPhone 6
Depending on the configuration of the iPhone you could try to ask Siri questions like "where do I live" or try to tap on emergency on the unlock screen and check whether they configured the emergency pass with "in case of emergency" numbers.

comment Finder Connect to Server Opens into VLC
I'm sorry, but sftp is definetly not supported in the Finder. If you want to use it, you'll definitely need third-party-solutions as described in the linked answer.

comment How to configure a MacBook so that it keeps a static IP-address when disconnected?
If reconfiguring the IP address to a FQDN is not possible, you'd best be using pfctl to redirect traffic coming from localhost to your static IP back to localhost (it would possibly be best also specifying which port).

Can you change the network settings of the client/server at all? If, for example, you could change it to use a full domain name instead of an IP, you could put an entry in /etc/hosts that redirects all traffic to your.domain.name to 127.0.0.1

comment Setting a custom log
@Michael good question! Indeed I'm not sure why syslog behaves differently for sshd (and apparently vnc, ftp so I submitted this as a new question here.
