comment How can I recover my MS Office 2011 product key?
This answer is incorrect. The product ID is shown there, not the serial number.

comment Mountain Lion screen crashes after returning from sleep
@user38162 I have detected a pattern involving external monitors as well. If I connect my laptop to my external monitor before the laptop screen is turned on, this usually happens. If I wait for the laptop screen to turn on, and then connect my external monitor, the problem does not occur.

Awesome, this is exactly what I need! Strange how such a useful is so obscurely hidden.

Have you ever solved this issue? This has been bugging me from day one.

comment My MacBook Pro 15.4" (A1286 - Late 2008) trackpad is missing clicks and generally not working
Since you are answering your own question, I assume that this is the particular case for you. I don't think this is an answer that fits everyone with these symptoms, though.

@bojolais have you had this question answered? I am very interested in this as well.

comment Is it possible to do a “clean” install of Lion?
Will doing a re-install using the Recovery HD perform a clean install (IE: throw away user files + settings)? If not, what is the recommended way to do this?

comment After disabling Filevault 1, is it possible to enable it again in Lion?
Still, after upgrading to Lion, there is the ability to keep using Filevault 1, which implies that support for it is builtin the OS. I highly doubt there is no way at all to reach it.

@Olivier do you have a reference for that?

comment Apart from being able to encypt an entire volume, what are the other differences of FileVault 2 over FileVault?
Obviously, the fact that the disk is encrypted in total by any user login makes a guest login useless when you use it as a theft recovery tool. In most cases, Filevault 1 would be a better solution

comment Is there a way to pickup iPhone calls on my Macbook Pro?
I checked out Phone Amego, but found it to be really poorly designed software, almost to the state that it is unusable. The interface is really lacking and I have not actually gotten it to work as well. Thanks for the tip, though!

@Asmus, of course, but that would pretty much make Filevault useless alltogether.

@Graham, this is a community-driven website which is based on editing eachother's posts. There is nothing wrong with headings, but to be quite honest, I find you posts very hard to read.

Wow, this is a pretty big difference that went unnoticed to me! This really has a pretty big impact on theft recovery strategies that recommend setting up a passwordless guest account.

comment Where is the Launchpad database stored and is there a way to edit it directly?
Thanks, this indeed is the location of the database, although not every table is really readable. Apps seem to be primarily stored in the table apps and renaming there should probably work. Editing the icons, though, should prove to be a bit harder.

comment What tiny thing in Lion makes you smile or has caught you off guard?
That's strange. It does not work in the comment field or post editor for me either. Try in the URL, that should work. Should be universal, though...
