Eamon McCann:

Just because its a mac and you cant change what the power button does doesn't mean it sucks.
by default the power button brings up a menu saying "are you sure you want to shut down" and display plenty of options for the user to choose, including sleep. an operating system reinstall should trigger this behaviour. easy.

Before saying macs suck just because of a minor difficulty, why don't you think of ways to actually FIX the problem instead of being a noob and saying what you believe in rules?!

i dont think there anyway to put the jus the display to sleep. the best thing i think you can do is change the sleep time into the shortest amount which is like a min so that put the disply to sleep but not the entore mac to sleep.
