I have conneceted my Macbook Pro (Late 2011) to my recently bought 27'' monitor with an HDMI cable. I have done all the settings so when I close the lid, I can still use my external monitor without any problems.
The issue however is that my Macbook Pro heats a lot when I do that and I also use two devices and therefore have to pay bills for two devices as well.
Is there any possible way of putting my Macbook Pro into sleep mode so that I can ONLY use my external monitor without my Macbook Pro being 'on' (sleep mode)?
- I use a bluetooth keyboard conneceted with a cable to charge
- I use a bluetooth mouse conneceted with a cable to charge
Both, mouse and keyboard can be used when my Macbook Pro's lid is closed.
