I run some iMacro scripts through Firefox every so often on my MacBook Pro and I like to turn my display off while they're running. I've been accomplishing this for the past year with the following setup:
- System Preferences > Energy Saver > Computer Sleep & Display Sleep are both set to Never
- Unchecked Put the hard disks to sleep when possible.
- Set a Hot Corner to Put Display to sleep
The issue is this has recently stopped working. When I put my cursor in my Hot Corner to turn my display off the display turns off but it also now stops my iMacro scripts from running. I'm not sure if the computer is actually going to sleep though as the display wakes up quickly with any interaction.
Since this has stopped working I've been turning my brightness all the way down until the display turns off to run my scripts. The issue with this approach though is that the keyboard stays illuminated.
How can I turn off my display and keyboard illumination, while at the same time leaving my MacBook Pro running to execute my iMacro scripts?
