I have a MacBookPro running OS X 10.8.5.
My understanding is Control ⌃+Shift ⇧+Eject ⏏ puts the Mac into a sleep mode. This is fine but what I want to know if there is a way to keep the ethernet port active while in this mode?
When I come out of this mode, I notice I am signed out of my messaging, disconnected from VM's I have running, etc... The connection comes back right away but I want to prevent the connection disruption.
I was also looking at this answer to "Equivalent of Win-L on Mac" which I really like as well. But again, it turns off the ethernet which I don't want to happen.
