Hi
I have bought a Lindy DisplayPort KVM Switch 2 Port Compact USB 2.0 Audio 42343 to use with Mac
The Problem is that it is not work correctly with Macbook pro Notebooks
Do to the fact if a Macbook pro is closed and no external Peripherie like Screen Mouse or Keyboard is attached it will go in sleep modus
which means all the time if I switch I have to wait until the PC comes back from the sleep modus

this Behavior is given with that Switch.
The Problem is that the not active Notebook will not get a signal on display port, Mouse or Keyboard so it will no stay waked up Modus

I had before a athen DVI which made id .
Is there a Way that the not active PC has signal on the Display port Mouse and Keyboard ? this would solve the problem


Many thanks for your feedback
Best regards

Hi Reto, I'm afraid it will not waken the non active machine when switched. Would disabling the power saving/sleep mode not be an option.

Hi Thanks for your reply
This ois on a Macbook not possible. as soon as the lid is closed and there is no external Equipment it goes in the sleep modus So there will no chance to correct that ?
