Sleep / Wake Loop while Screen Down
Laptop goes to Sleep when screen is closed then wakes up moments later only to repeat the process. Process only stops once laptop is reopened however sometimes some keyboard commands don't work (delete & command Q, restart corrects this issue).
Tried resetting the PRAM, reloaded OS, and checked key board alinement. No affect.
I ran a small magnet over Reed Switch. Laptop goes to sleep with screen turning black then goes into wake/sleep loop again however when it is "awake" screen is 90% black with desktop faintly visible. Laptop wakes up once magnet remove.
Laptop goes to sleep normally if screen is left up and not closed. No sleep/ wake loop.
So I'm thinking of just disconnecting the reed switch.
is there anyway to disconnect it without tearing the laptop and bezel apart?
If not (and assuming it's a bad Reed Switch) does anyone know if the Reed Switch is included with the Inverter / Airport Cable Product code: IF183-000-1? I have replaced my LCD before and If i have to dig that deep I would rather just replace the reed switch.
