comment Mac doesn't sleep when lid is closed, but upon opening the lid it falls asleep?
How long have you waited? I have a 2011 MacBook Pro (non retina) with 16 GB of RAM. When you put the computer to sleep, the contents are RAM are written to disk so that should the battery die while it is asleep, you are able to "wake" the mac back up when it has power again. That can take some time, especially if I have a number of programs open. Before I put an SSD in here, it could take as long a eight minutes!

Yes... you are right.. 16. I was unable to create the 17th. 16 seems like an un-arbitrary number, so I retract that statement.

comment OSX Mavericks horizontal scrolling doesn't work well in Finder?
I only see this when using column view, while I am trying to scroll the selected file out of the viewport. For instance if a file in the rightmost column is selected and I attempt to scorll sideways such that that file becomes not visible. Scrolling is smooth in all other finder views. (2009, 2011, and 2012 MacBook Pro, 2012 Mac-Mini)

comment How to trigger lid close action programmatically?
Does it have to be a "lid close action" specifically, or are you looking to programmatically put the machine to sleep?

Is your wireless router a 5GHz model? It is likely that your 10.3 machine cannot access the 5GHz band. Your router should also have the ability to transmit on the 2.4 GHz band. It may also be labeled at 802.11b|g vs 802.11a|n you will need to activate the b|g channel

that didn't come through... but I have looked up u-verse on the interwebs. AT&T provided you with a residential gateway and it has wireless built in - didn't they?

More specifically, does your network look like this: Cable or DSL connection --> Modem --> WiFi/Router/Switch --> your computers ???

Are you sure you have a device on your network providing DHCP? What does your network look like? I am not familiar with how AT&T U-verse is set up. Do they provide you with a wireless AP? Is it DSL to the house? Do you have a DSL or Cable modem/router? Do you then have a second wireless router?

OK... your Mac is not getting an address from a DHCP server. It is effectively not on your network.

Can we safely assume that the obfuscated values in your TCP/IP configuration are valid values? Or are they blank/self-assigned values? I see that you are set to use DHCP, that is a good start. But please check that you are getting a valid address from your DHCP server.
