Concluding the Tour

Now that you have seen the highlights of Mac OS X and have a basic understanding of what features do what, a few final notes are in order.

Put the Computer to Sleep

To put your Mac into a state of suspended animation, select the Sleep option from the Apple menu. The computer will appear to shut down, the fans and hard drive will spin down, and the display will go dark, but the power indicator light, which varies from model to model but which is usually purple, will pulse gently. This means that you can immediately wake the computer from sleep at any time by pressing a key or moving the mouse. The computer will immediately become usable again, without having to go through the entire boot cycle.
